The Glenkinchie distillery has been renovated and since October 2020 has been turned into the Lowland Home of Johnnie Walker. This Lowlander is one of the fingerprint malts in that famous blend. Today I will try this so-called Distillers Edition, in which the malt has gotten a second maturation. In the case of Glenkinchie this is on a Amontillado sherry cask.

Honey sweet and very fruity nose on peach, green grapes, Granny Smith apples, peach and gooseberries. A dash of honey, a handful of almond shavings and some vanilla make it picture perfect.

Nicely oily and mouthcoating with the same sweetness as on the nose, but upholstered with some white pepper and liquorice. Feisty, actually. The fruit turns quite tropical. Think mango and sultanas. Mildly draying from the second step forward.

The finish is fairly long and sweet, but leaves your mouth relatively dry.

Those who find the regular Glenkinchie too ordinary, might be pleasantly surprised by this Distillers Edition. I quite like this. A bottle will set you back between 50 and 60 euros.
