Glenkinchie 24yo 1991-2016 700ml
Matured in refill European oak butts, this 24 year old Glenkinchie single malt is part of Diageo's 2016 Special Releases. 5,928 natural cask strength bottles were produced, making it the oldest official bottling of cask strength Glenkinchie ever released as well as the first matured exclusively in European oak!
Nose: Star fruit and a slight saltiness from the Sherry casks, perhaps some lime pickle. Golden sultanas emerge and take centre stage, supporting by bracken and kindling.
Palate: Less fruity and more oak-driven with some Sherried apples and vanilla sugar.
Finish: Medium with peppery oak.
