Member Ratings and Notes
Huge fruit on the nose with apples and pears.  The palate is very clean with malt, fruit and floral notes.  On the finish it's more of the floral with some hay/grass type notes.

I don't generally care for Glenkinchie at regular age and strength, but I've had the experience with a number of lowlanders that their flavors really come out with some more age and strength, and this is one of them.  It's shows you the flavor of the malt unencumbered by peat or sherry.  Really great stuff. 
Oh man, this is excellent! A great example of what scotch can be without being overwhelmed by smoke or sherry. It's all about really nice spices (clove, allspice) and white tree fruits (apples, pears). "Middle of the road" as the range of scotch flavors go, but in the best of ways. My only criticism is that the pricing could be better, but as a consumer, I'm gonna say that pretty frequently. Get it while it lasts, this is exciting whisky. 
N: Grassy, clean, Lemon Heads.
P: Quite fruity / floral, mainly citrus.
F: Clean, ends on pink bubblegum.  
A very solid and enjoyable fruity whisky.  It's always great to discover a winner from a less renowned distillery, opens the door for more exploration. 

n: Peach Blossoms


p: Peachyperfume.  Macy's hot lady selling perfume (I may have been drunk by this point.)
