GLENKINCHIE 12YO 700 ML

Country: Scotch Whisky

Region: Lowland Whisky

Age: 12 year old Whisky

Alcohol: 43.0%

Volume: 700m

Glenkinchie is a Scotch single malt whisky, produced at the Glenkinchie Distillery near Edinburgh. It is one of only three remaining Lowland malt whiskies in production. 


Glenkinchie lies, as the name might suggest, in a glen of the Kinchie Burn near the village of Pencaitland, East Lothian. It is situated about 15 miles from Edinburgh. The distillery is set in farmland. The name 'Kinchie' is a corruption of 'De Quincy', the original owners of the land. Its origins date back to around 1825 when it was founded by brothers John and George Rate.

The standard 10 year old Glenkinchie has now been replaced by the standard "12 year old". This is a fairly typical lowland whisky in that it is fresh and light in character, with notes of lemon and cut grass. A sweet nose and a hint of peat make this a good introduction to the world of single malts.

Tasting Note

Nose: is quite light, yet fragrant. Notes of fresh cereal and grist, some barley sweetness and a nutty note. Acacia honey creeps in with gentle warmth.

Palate: is very fruity with notes of Madeira and sweet stewed fruits. A hint of calvados and tannic oak lining the mouth. There is a freshness and roundness to this dram.

Finish: is of medium length with notes of cereal and a fresh greenness.
