This is a 20 year Glenkinchie that was released as part of the 2010 Diageo Special Releases. It was matured in refill American oak and bottled at 55.1% ABV.
Nose: Candy apples, cookie dough, pear crisp, subtle licorice, vanilla, some grassy notes, and buttercream frosting.
Palate: Beeswax, apples, pears, butterscotch, anise, turning a bit farmy after awhile with some toasted marshmallows appearing.
Finish: Oaky and green with unripe bananas and marshmallows.
Rating: 88/100 – I’m not usually a big fan of Lowlands, but this one was pleasant and quite fruity.
Value for the money: I believe I paid around $150-200 for this a few years back, and I think that’s a pretty decent price for what you get.
