The Four Corners Glenkinchie 16 Year Old Tasting Notes
The official tasting notes for this whisky are: A fragrant, fresh and elegant example of Glenkinchie with fruity notes of baked apple combined with subtle creamy traces of mossy aromas. The texture is luscious and smooth, opening with sweet flavours, swiftly followed by slightly drying and spicy tones which are perfectly balanced by appetising juicy acidity. The finish is elegantly dry and crisp, carrying an attractive aftertaste of white pepper. Reminiscent of the distillery’s rural setting, this excellent aperitif malt brings up a touch of vanilla ice cream, countered by a sharper freshness when added a splash of water.
