Description

This Glenkinchie was distilled in 2005 and bottled in 2017 from an ex-Amontillado cask.

Each Distillers Edition expression undergoes a second (or double) maturation in casks that have previously held a fortified wine.  In this case Amontillado cask number G/290-7-D.

Tasting Notes

Nose
Distillery:  Firmer, drier notes from soft vanilla to crisp grape. Sweeter, nuttier tones come from the malted barley and cask wood.
Taste
Distillery: Dry, after early biscuit-sweetness. Enormous malt character contrasts with the fruitiness of the grape.
Finish
Distillery: Very long, dry, oaky. Very faint peppery notes add spice, softened by very late caramel.
