Glenkinchie Distillers Edition 2003 Amontillado Finish 70cl 43°
Glenkinchie, a spirit crafted in the Lowlands, develops utmost elegance and complexity expressed in a masterful combination of sweet and dry flavours.
When reaching bottling age, each Classic Malt is refined for another 6 months in a cask from the Iberian Peninsula, and becomes a Distillers Edition.
This vintage, bottled in 2015 after a 14-year maturation in American oak refill casks, develops the sweetness typical of the distillery, with a double maturation in Amontillado Sherry casks carefully selected to bring a beautiful fruitiness magnifying its flavours.
This Glenkinchie, of sunny colour and delicate, sweet nose, shows the influence of Amontillado that embraced the malt. The ageing in Amontillado Sherry casks passes on fresh and clean aromas to the malt as well as chestnut and spicy flavours.
For your information, our vintages regularly change. It's possible to receive another year.

Only 15 miles away from the Edinburgh Castle and the Scottish capital, the peaceful landscapes of barley fields in which sits the Glenkinchie Distillery look heavenly.
Glenkichie boasts of producing the “Edinburgh malt”. In 1825, two Lowlands farmers, George and John Rate, built a distillery they called Milton. In 1837, they renamed it and gave it the name of the stream still flowing today for the distillery: the “Kinchie”. Glenkinchie is today one of the few remaining distilleries still operating in the Lowlands. It is the only Scottish distillery to be managed by a woman, Kay Fleming. Its whisky owes its lightness of character to ones of the widest stills of Scotland. The unique character of Glenkinchie ranks the distillery in the Classic Malts Selection. Created more than 20 years ago, this selection recognises Single Malts crafted in the tradition of iconic distilleries, and offers the most impressive whisky styles Scotland has to offer.
