Glenkinchie Distillers Edition
Glenkinchie // Lowlands, Scotland
Amontillado [a-mon-tee-YA-doh] is a type of sherry wine that is delicate, dry, and nutty. Glenkinchie is located in the Lowland region of Scotland where today, only three distilleries remain. If you travel to Edinburgh, you might as well pay this distillery a visit as it is only 20 miles away.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
Cask Typeaged predominantly in ex-bourbon and finished in Amontillado Sherry casks
"As Glenkinchie is a light and delicate whisky, it makes sense to pair it with an equally light and delicate wine finishing. The nutty quality of the wine helps to intensify the oaky character in the whisky. Slightly sweet with a molasses and caramel factor, the whisky concludes with more nuts covered in spices."
