Whisky Discovery #3

Glenkinchie 12 Year Old (43% abv, OB Bottled +/- 2010 20cl)
Lowland Single Malt Whisky
Circa £9 at my local supermarket

Just a 20cl sampler
The second of the  two small bottles picked up to sample alongside my Laphroaig.

The nose is quite light, yet fragrant. Notes of fresh cereal, some barley sweetness and a nuttiness. Honey creeps in with gentle warmth. The palate is very fruity with notes of Madeira and sweet stewed fruits. A hint of calvados and tannic oak lining the mouth. There is a freshness and roundness to this dram. The finish is of medium length with notes of cereal.
