Glenkinchie, 59.3%

Price: $97 Issue: Spring 2011 Reviewer: Dominic Roskrow

Another whisky that will not disappoint fans of the brand, but it doesn't do enough to bring any converts on board. The nose is fresh and sweet, with barley and ginger and not much else. The taste is perfectly acceptable, and at this strength better than the standard bottling. Water brings out a sweet malt and barley core, some gentle spice, and a rich sweetness.
