Glenkinchie Distillers Edition 1992 has been partly matured in Amontillado sherry casks and bottled in 2007. It is a fantastic single malt whisky which breaks out from the norm for normal lowland whiskies that are said to have a short finish, try this and you will realise that this is utter nonsense.
The nose is very fruity with a gentle sweetness. Some spice and pepper creeps in with a touch of oaked acidity and zesty orange with subtle esters. On the palate the sherry notes come through adding a warming sensation to the experience. Following this is the flavour from the oak that is accompanied by notes of allspice leading you to the finish. This lingers on the palate and at the back of the throat with trailing flavours of oak and nutty notes.
