UK 12 YO Whisky Glenkinchie

Glenkinchie is celebrated as a light and delicate whisky, ideal for the sophisticated connoisseur who enjoys a pre-dinner drink. It’s light character is born from its distillation in some of Scotland’s largest stills; matured for 12 years, the result is a light, floral whisky with a fresh, creamy taste. Glenkinchie is perfect as an aperitif Single Malt or at the start of a meal due to its fragrant, light and appetising body and taste. The letters GK in gold emphasise the malt's good provenance and high stature.

Serving Suggestion: Glenkinchie 12 is fantastic with fish! The character of Glenkinchie – light, slightly dry, smoky with spice – makes it good with raw and spicy fish. Sashimi and sushi, scallops in bacon, tempura prawns. It’s just perfect, too, with a simple madeleine or Parmigiano Reggiano.


APPEARANCE - Bright gold.

BODY - Light, smooth.

NOSE - Very aromatic and flowery overall, like breathing in a country garden. Noticeable vanilla, cut flowers (daffodil, blossom and hints of lily) and beneath these, a clean, toasty note. Becomes increasingly sweet and creamy, with a lightly aromatic edge and fresh citrus, which all brings to mind lemon cheesecake. Water makes it still more creamy and scented.

PALATE - A sweet soft start, like crême anglaise, soon becoming flowery again. A really smooth delivery, especially after adding a drop of water. The mid-palate is crisp and then the flavour settles into a tightly focused bundle of butter icing, lemon cheesecake and freesias.

FINISH - Herbal and drying, a little like potpourri.
