Glenkinchie 13 Year Old Distiller's Edition Single Malt Scotch
Each Distillers Edition expression undergoes a second (or ‘double’) maturation in casks that have previously held a fortified wine. After mellowing in a refill cask to develop the soft distillery character for a decade, a secondary maturation in a specifically chosen amontillado sherry wood cask ensures that all the good work continues.
This is a very fine Lowland whiskey, and much more complex than the Glenkinchie's standard 12 year old expression. Much like that expression it would make a great brunch whiskey, but could be paired with more hearty brunch dishes (meats, heavier egg preparations). It would also make a great stepping stone for someone new to Scotch who wants to expand from the lighter whiskies in the Glenkinchie and Auchentoshan lines to something more complex.
