35cl // 42.6% ABV
If you’ve been wondering about the whisky from the Kininvie Distillery, which you might have seen if you’ve visited the Balvinie Distillery, here’s your chance to get a taste of their single malt! This is the first official release under the Kininvie name for the world, a 23 Year Old whisky matured in a combination of bourbon and Sherry casks, presented in 35cl bottles.
This bottle is a one only. It has become a collectors item already.
Sold out at my supplier in one day.
Nose: Sweet, sugary fruits and deep syrupy goodness. Spicy, ripe peaches being torn open, vanilla, a little kiwi, hints of that Sherry.
Palate: More peach, with cream at first like a Campino sweet, before becoming more removed from the central sweetness with gentle oak building. All fairly light, but full of flavour.
Finish: A little bigger and longer than expected with more sweet syrup notes.
Overall: Wow! That combination of 80% bourbon and 20% Sherry along with the 23 year maturation is the mutts nuts – no wonder they chose to finally release a Kininvie!
