Glenkinchie 1991 Distillers Edition
The Lowlands

Did you really think you'd make it through a Top 10 Single Malt Scotch list without seeing one of the Glen's? Glenkinchie started making world-class Scotch in 1837. This being a Scottish Lowland Malt, we expected a grassy, slightly floral and full-bodied spirit, which is what we got — both on the nose and in the glass. The palate offers a pleasant, subtle mixture of leather, smoke, vanilla, honey, Sherry and stewed red berry fruit. It finishes with surprising strength, based in nutty molasses, brown sugar, smoke and caramel apples. Such complexity is rare for a Lowland whisky, but not for an exceptional Single Malt Scotch.

Price: $70
