1991 Glenkinchie 24 Year Old Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml) - Special Release 2016

Lowlands, SCOTLAND
$599.00 Bottle
  • ABV 57.2%

Matured for 24 years in refill European oak butts, this is reportedly the oldest cask strength Glenkinchie to have hit the market. According to bloggers who've tasted the 2016 Special Releases, it's been a consistent (and unexpected) crowd favourite which "stood out against the pack". All round richer and more Sherry influenced, expect this Glenkinchie to take you by surprise. Total outturn of 5928 bottles. 57.2% Alc./Vol.

Lowland whiskies are generally used as background material for blends and have historically been unappreciated (or at least largely neglected) by malt enthusiasts. Their whiskies offer a refreshing contrast to the heavier, peatier malts of the north with Rosebank and Glenkinchie being two outstanding examples.

Other reviews... They had a very good 20 yo 1990 a few years ago (WF 86), which I had found pretty ‘Rosebanky’. Colour: gold. Nose: a little aggressive, with quite a lot of wood varnish, broken branches, crushed fresh almonds, and simply… err, high-strength vodka. Some coconut oil too. May need water (of course it does)… With water: very nice, ripe fruits, apple juice, vanilla… A kind of high-strength pina colada with malt instead of rum. Mouth (neat): good modern style, with oranges, lemon, coconut, vanillin, and quite some green tea. Some sweet newish oak may have been used, for there is also quite some liquorice wood, with a terpenic side. With water: good roughness, not common in Glenkinchie, and I guess that’s the oak. Green tea, a spoonful of honey, sweet apples, some barley syrup… Finish: rather long, with more liquorice wood again. A little mint in the aftertaste. Comments: really to my liking, perhaps a bit between an old grain and an old malt. Some good oak seems to have been in use.
