Glenkinchie Distillers Edition 1991 vintage, 43%

Price: $65 Issue: Summer 2006 Reviewer: John Hansell

Matured in amontillado casks. Pleasantly fresh, briny, and yeasty, which works nicely with the atypical toffee and nutty notes. Glenkinchie's dry, grassy character emerges occasionally, as does some delicate background spice and a hint of lime. Pretty hefty stuff for Lowland malt.
