GLENKINCHIE 27 years spécial release 2023 58,3%
the Glenkinchie 27 year old single malt is surely one of the oldest malts bottled for this Special Release 2023. This rare whiskey has been slowly aged for twenty-seven years in American and European oak barrels to obtain an imperiously refined expression of its floral flavors. lush. A hint of fruit at the opening of the nose evokes the image of the apple orchard, soon joined by light touches of almond and vanilla, before lush aromas of meadow grass develop the floral theme.

It is certainly a masterpiece.
