This 12 year old is the new entry level bottling from Glenkinchie, released in 2007 to replace the 10 year old.
The nose is quite light, yet fragrant. Notes of fresh cereal and grist, some barley sweetness and a nutty note. Acacia 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 and a fresh greenness.

Its the first scotch I've had the pleasure of tasting, and it's a good place to start. It opens up wonderfully with a little bit of ice. Would definitely buy again.

Smashin taste!! Considering the strength its nice to the nose. Tastewise.... Strong but mild.. Honey is quite distinctive. I drank at room temp on its own! Lovely.

As smooth as the day is long. A veritable delight. A must-have in my collection.

I can understand why the reviews for this are mixed. It took me half a bottle to decide if I liked it or not (spread over a number of weeks). It is mild, but then it is a Lowland Whisky so that should be expected. Being a Lowland novice I usually sample Islay, Speyside or Highland whisky. I initially found this to be bland but I think I needed to learn how to enjoy a different style of whisky. I had to learn to appreciate the light nutty, barley, grass and oak aroma and the oat, honey and apple palate. This whisky is quite good at what it is: a good value, delicate, subtle whisky. Personally, I prefer more intensity but this whisky (and the Lowland region) doesn't promise intensity so I ought to be fair in how I assess it.
28th September 2016
This is a very delicate whiskey. This is my first bottle. I'm actually savoring it. Though at the current price, it may become my staple first call.
25th July 2016
Great value whisky that hard to fault, easy drinking and very moreish be warned!
16th June 2016
Excellent fine whisky for connoisseurs. Many other more expensive whiskies don't have the same structure and delicate palate
3rd June 2016
This is really a great whisky for beginners and experienced drinkers of Scotch. Obvious notes of honey and green tea. Lightly warming the palate, it’s beautifully balanced and nuanced. Not peaty at all, but much unappreciated. If you like this try Springbank 10.

As a passionate and frequent adventurer in the alcoholic arts, I gave this scotch a little try while exploring the wonders offered by the beautiful city of Edinburgh - the only wonder of this scotch is why it is still on the shelf. The vicious flavour could only be improved if a Canada Dry ginger ale company drowned the pub I was sitting in - and honestly I would have welcomed the spicy, watery grave.

If it didn't say single malt on the side could have thought it was a blended jobbie
5th May 2016
I like this offering and can really tell the difference compared to a Balvenie or Auchentoshan. I would call this a "classic" single malt Scotch. I think we are really lucky to find this locally (Montreal, Quebec)
22nd April 2016
Easy to drink. Very smooth and sweet. Initial taste of honey and grass. On the back gets little hint of smok with tobacco notes. Good for the price if you are looking for a easy drink or in a hot region where peated can be little hard to drink
6th March 2016
Recommended,, so must try
6th February 2016
So this is the last of Diageo's classic malts of scotland range that I hadn't tried so after some searching picked up a bottle today. Initial taste is lightly charred oak followed by honey and sweet grains with a nice floral/fruity finish.I am normally a peat head but I love how grassy this one tastes it's like taking a stroll through a meadow I love it. Sort of reminiscent of dalwhinnie 15 but smoother and fruitier this was definitely worth the effort it took to obtain it. The Sugarbear
27th January 2016
A refreshing apple cheeked bottle of bliss: hints of honey and a trickle of grape juice and plums nose of hay and oats burst of gold tipped greenery and a long finish of sweet ceylon Dimbula tea.
20th January 2016
I can understand some people thinking this is bland. It doesn't have a massive character or a flavour profile you could hang your hat on, but MAN this thing is smooooooooth!Just enough florals to keep it worthwhile and a touch of heat in the finish to remind you what you're drinking. A really great easy drinker.

5th January 2016
Flat and floral perfume, but round and smooth. Thin, not full-bodied at all. An artificial finish. Compared to Cragganmore 12 and Dalwhinnie 15, this is a little bit boring, but I think I'll give it another try sooner or later.Not bad, but not highly recommended.
25th December 2015
My favourite non peated whisky
22nd November 2015
Veritable delight for lovers of non heated single malt whisky.
I have been searching for just this in my favorite scotch. The neat nose is wonderful I interpret lemon zest, pepper, caramel and honey, warm grains with a hint of smoke. To drink I feel citrus oil tingling my lips a nice mild pepper burn faint peat faint oak, sweet grain caramel, marshmallows and a nutty smooth finish.Wow!
7th November 2015
Very, very tasty scotch that won't break the bank! My new favorite.
5th November 2015
I love it. fruity and soft, delicious.
31st October 2015
Had my first dram in Liverpool last night a great drink to end an evening. Light, floral and sweet.
24th October 2015
I drink it very often. I love this taste...
26th August 2015
This is such a smooth drink with a refreshing feeling left on your mouth after every sip, simply a wonderful drink, I would have rated 10 but my phone touchscreen is terrible, happy drinking
20th August 2015
This is a light mellow whisky with notes of alfalfa honey, sun-dried tomatoes, golden raisins and fresh-hewn maple. Not quite nutmeg, but a woody spice. Does not have the clover honey flavor of Jura, but a pleasant, consistent honey note. Even at 43% does not require water to be enjoyed; the flavors will appear with time in the glass.
18th August 2015
Had this with a few cigars on my stag do. Got mixed reviews from some of my guests but an overall great drink especially with a cigar really bring out the flavours in the cigar
30th May 2015
.....but not vacuous..... goes against the grain of single mslt classics in that it is not heavy, peaty, smoky..... but crisp, mellow, smmooth, creamy n fruity n hint of aromatic spice at the same time....
17th April 2015
Its the best for me smooth scotch really great.
23rd March 2015
Blows Auchentoshan out of the water. Distinct lowland character. You get the citrus tang. It's also got a maltiness about it, that lowland barley. There is also a sweetness about it. 43% ABV fills in the flavor profile well.
12th February 2015
This has to be one of the most enjoyable scotches out their. Thank you for the experience.
8th February 2015
I am new at the Scotch world but am enthralled with the many aspects of this whiskey. The color is wonderfully golden with an aroma to me as spiced fruit. I did not pick up on the cereals... The pallet was not as smooth as expected, but generous with a full body of nutty fruit. Then there was a wonderful charred flavor that broke to a fruity finish. I was duly impressed with this 12 year.
25th January 2015
This is my 100% perfect malt.
13th January 2015
color: rich golden nose: fruity, some vegetal and herbal notes emerge with water palate: rich texture, fruity and honey notes finish: fairly short, clean with heather and barley A nice whisky. This is much better than the old Glenkinchie 10 y/o of the past.
2nd December 2014
I'have received one bottle from my daughter,last June.I've already bought others Glen...,but never with this quality and taste !I'am sure that it will be very difficult to come back now ! Thanks for the pleasure, you give me !
29th September 2014
Since being launched as an individual malt after being purely a blenders malt, Glenkinchie has got better and better. A much more satisfying dram than its Glasgow rival, it has a naturally smooth velvet texture only found in the best single malts. It can be hard to find, but is well worth it.
28th April 2014
I was given a bottle as a gift and loved it. It is now my firs- choice single malt, however, a bit pricey for my pocketbook.
11th April 2014
A smooth, gentle sort..maybe not as exciting as others in the same price range but very comfortable. This won't be my last bottle.
13th February 2014
Bought a bottle of this a few months ago as it was on offer at a reasonable price. Wasn't expecting major things as the reviews i had seen were mixed. But it has been highly enjoyable. Very smooth. Starts fruity and then honey for me. Almost has a creamy finish to it. Will definitely be making a repeat purchase.
13th January 2014
I had not had Glenkinchie for over 10 years. Very smooth and easy to drink, so in my house it won't last long. Strangely, my Edinburgh born father thinks it has an unpleasant aftertaste that I cannot detect at all - still, what does he know ! Highly recommended.
6th January 2014
got a bottle in Vegas airport with the last of my dollars to take home and its a lovey well balanced malt great taste and after taste would recommend it to any whiskey fan plus the bottles are generously sized which is always a bonus
26th November 2013
just love this single malt...
10th October 2013
Amazing drink but way better with a drop of water makes its sooo smooth.....71 $ in quebec a bit expensive
7th October 2013
Nice nose, good on the palette initially but let down by the tail - there are better drams for the same dollars out there
14th September 2013
A CLASSIC MALT WHAT MORE CAN YOU SAY I DRINK IT EVERY WEEK
13th August 2013
It does indeed come with a tasting glass! The whisky's not half bad, either! --The Chaps at Master of Malt
15th July 2013
The picture would suggest so, but there is no mention. Not that it's a deal breaker, but it certainly would be persuasive if I choose to purchase this one shortly. x
5th July 2013
Bought a bottle because it was reduced, I did not know what to expect. It has a great taste and really nice flavor of malt. Willould buy another bottle again in the future.
4th May 2013
The 'Edinburgh Malt' representative in style of a typical Lowlander. Inoffensive and light, enjoyable early afternoon or as a lunchtime digestive. Nose: Light tones of barley and nuts (almonds, maybe cashews?). Honey oozes with a gently fruitiness. Palate: Fresh, sappy and fruity. Honey and melon notes sing out with a hint of apple and oak. Finish: Not of great length, but maintains that freshness and slight sappy sweetness, with a touch of barley.
18th April 2013
best in its class. for my tastes at least. superb....
25th March 2013
what a revelation - a fan of the big peat, Isla etc. but this slaps you around the face , and says 'what about me- the pretty one, who isn't 'in your face' - but sweet , demure - enjoy me for my clarity of soul and longevity of essence.Many thanks to T and Z for introducing me to this.
6th March 2013
So easy to drink My wife loves it.....
14th December 2012
Just had a sample from Master of Malt - enjoyed the light taste, really smooth. Highly recommended.
5th October 2012
Drink Glenkinchie 12 year old at my local.The Stables in Kirkintilloch. It is first class.
21st September 2012
Just picked up a bottle of this from local supermarket as it was on offer, great sub £30 dram if, like me, you like them smooth and subtle.
