The lowlands whiskies of Scotland in many respects reflect the landscape they are produced in. The countryside is certainly not without natural beauty, however it lacks the dramatic and rugged contrasts of the Highland and Island regions. Lowland whiskies consequently are generally used as background material for blends and have historically been unappreciated (or at least largely neglected) by malt enthusiasts.
Nevertheless, it would be a mistake to belittle the Lowlands. Their whiskies offer a refreshing contrast to the heavier, peatier malts of the north. Indeed, whiskies such as the twelve year old from the Glenkinchie distillery possess unique qualities of their own which repay due attention. Located near the village of Pencaitland and first founded in the 1830's, the Glenkinchie distillery has since been renovated and today includes a small museum.
Tasting note: This tasty, refreshing malt is typical of the character of lowland whiskies. Soft, smokey and sweetly aromatic. The palate reveals a grassy sweetness balanced with a warming, slightly spicy, drying finish. Exceptionally smooth. These qualities of Glenkinchie make it an excellent pre-dinner drink. 43% alc./vol.
"This is the smokiest of all Lowland malts. Some drink this pale, slightly dry, 10-year-old as an alternative to sherry." - Fiona Ennys, Liverpool Echo, 26 January 1996.
"Lowland malts are generally accessible...Glenkinchie being dry and complex." Andrew Barr, Sunday Times, 14 January 1996.
