Glenkinchie 12 Year Old
Mark,
Nice bottle, good finish but not a standout

Anders,
I have different drinks for different moods. This Scotch is my perfect wind down after a long work week. It's kind against your palate, sweet and tones of apple and honey that is wonderful in my opinion. Maybe not my first choice for a night of whisky tasting but perfect for relaxing. On the nose it's wonderful with strong honey scent.

Smooth with a bit of water, nice oak finish.

Cynthia,
Strong, but it’s got the classic deep sweet notes of caramel, toasty oak/cereal flavors. Drank it neat - no problem - quite good!

Bhaumik,
Like it, a great dram and perfect to end the night on. Citrus and honey really finish on the palate nicely. A drop of water releases the sweetness and smooths the finish perfectly

Unpleasant nose. Relatively smooth taste, not a bad finish but would not buy.

sweet honey taste

Chad,
Light, citrus, green apple, slight oak. Unremarkable at first, but decent finish as the flavors show themselves at the end.

Nick,
Bourbon is my drink of choice, and while this is not my first experience with Scotch, this is my first time attempting to review a Scotch. I received a Scotch taster box with 3 samples, and the Lowland single malt Glenkinchie 12 Year is what I am starting with. I don't know what the typical notes are in a Scotch, or if there are even "typical" notes, so I'll do my best to give an honest and accurate review. If you're a Scotch virgin like me, this review may be just what you're looking for. The nose is bright and light with honey sweetness, slight fruit, cereal, and some underlying smokiness. There is something about the nose that reminds me of white wine, but I'm not a wine guy so who knows what that means? The mouthfeel is smooth and oily with a palate that is sweet, light, and fruity. There are not a lot of standout flavors so describing this whisky in anything but general terms is difficult. The finish is moderate with an earthy smoke and apple followed by a bit of mint. I suspect that this is a good introductory Scotch and is easy to drink. There was nothing in here that scares me away from Scotch, but also nothing to bring me back. Scotch cocktails are not something I am familiar with, but I would imagine this would be a good one to use in a cocktail. It's fine.

Joe,
Definitely need to drink it water back. Neat, there is a very long and harsh finish that mellows significantly with a splash. Very nice citrus aroma. Hints of peach in the mellowed finish.
Glenkinchie 12 Year Old
Mathew,
Light citrus on the nose maybe a hint of wood. Light overall, sweet, hints of grain. Generally mild.

Glenkinchie 12 Year Old
Michael,
Smooth with citric taste. Not A strong bite but a long after taste. Doesn’t have a rich, full taste. Not my type of Scotch but drinkable.

Robert,
Inspection: Light in color, not thick (doesnt stick to the glass much) Aroma: Honey Notes Dominate, with floral notes. Slightly smokey as well. Taste: a bit of a Bite throughout the whole time in mouth. Definitely taste the Honey, and Green Apple. Even with a bite, still pretty Smooth. Exhale: Very smooth compared to the Taste, not much of a burn at all. Overall: I dig it. Smooth with a Bite if that makes any sense, definitely will keep in mind of buying a Bottle.

Jennifer,
Sweet and pleasant. Smooth and no smoke/peat at all, which is quite good for one who doesn’t define as a scotch fan (yet).

marlynn,
When drinking it neat the nose was very cereal forward with a bread yeast nose. The first taste to hit was oak. The finish was smooth and warm. After adding 2 drips of water, the nose definitely turned grassy. The sweet came out with a hint of honey. A smooth, lingering finish.
Glenkinchie 12 Year Old
Charles,
Really smooth. I can really tell the honey and green apples apart. I would buy it again.

David,
The citrus, mostly lemons hit the nose directly together with a cereal tone, At first taste apples shines through, more fruits with lemon at the forefront and barley, Smooth medium finish, almost grassy at the end,

Nathanael,
I'm very new to scotch, First scotch I have had that has no peaty or earthy flavors. I love it.
Glenkinchie 12 Year Old
Tristan,
Salted caramel and dried figs on the nose with a faint hint of currant. Tastes almost like a Reece’s with more fig and a little citrus on the palate. I find this to be pleasant and would gladly drink this again.
Glenkinchie 12 Year Old
Brett,
Smooth. Not much scent but a good flavor profile. A little sweeter than a usual scotch with the citrus and honey notes.
Glenkinchie 12 Year Old
Kurt,
Fresh citrus and honey give it a nice sweet balance. Not strong on the nose. At its price point there is not much that is better!
Glenkinchie 12 Year Old
Sandi,
Packed with flavor. A tad flat on the nose.
