Glenkinchie must be one of the least talked about single malts on this forum. Is it really so dull? What do you think about the new 12yo versus the old 10 - and have you tried any of the other expressions such as the DE or the 20yo?

Had the Glenkinchie DE in a hotel
last weekend,the nose remined me
slightly of the Glenmorangie port.
After tasting I was very disappointed
dull,bitter and no complexity.

The new 12yo old is so much better than the 10yo. Unlike the 10yo this is typical Lowlandstyle, not so sharp in the mouth...

The 20yo is great as well. I can recommend to check it out!

The DE (dist 1993) was a little disappointing I think.

But in general I'm glad that they have some nice bottlings on offer now, as I really didn't like the GK 10yo...

I have had the regular 10 yo and its one of those bottles I always hv in my bar. Its probably the lightest malt going and my favourite summertime drink. (at 45 degrees celcius, its tough to down an ardbeg).

I hv also observed that newbies prefer the 10 yo. Its one of the better introductory malts for sure.

Never had a problem with the 10YO. Quite enjoyed the one I was given .

But I never bought one either...
