About the Whisky
This Lowland Single Malt is perfect as an apéritif or at the start of a meal thanks to its fragrant, light and appetising body and taste.
Serving Suggestion: Glenkinchie 12 Year Old makes a delightful aperitif. Serve it in a martini glass with a few drops of water for a little flare.
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.
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.
Herbal and drying, a little like potpourri.
