Glenkinchie Managers' Choice 2010 Single Malt
70cl, 58.1% abv
Glenkinchie Managers' Choice 2010 Single Malt Whisky is the kind of whisky you remember with affection. Water transforms this whisky and surprises every step of the way. A first class, clean, citrusy malt with that little extra to make you happy. Distilled in 1992, only 528 bottles were filled.
Nose: Delicate, refined with soft hints of lemon and notes of straw and barley sugar. Thereafter, smooth honey, lemon and the scent of marshmallows. Water introduces sweet and floral notes: Turkish Delight dusted with powdered sugar.
Palate: Light, drying with fresh citrus which develops into liquorice and eucalyptus. Rounded, cooling and faintly spicy with water.
Finish: The fruit gives way to mature oak off-set by creamy vanilla and very late menthol.
