Kininvie 23 Year Old 1991 Batch No.3
Aroma: A rich and vibrant aroma with ripe fleshy fruit notes overlaid with creamy vanilla toffee sweetness. A subtle floral leafy flavour with light summer blossom notes develops over time.
Palate: Beautifully soft and mellow with a luxurious silky texture. The rich vanilla oakiness resulting from 23 years of maturation gives an incredible depth of flavour and sweetness. Woody spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves are layered with zesty citrus and candied orange peel.
Conclusions: From a mix of Hogshead and Sherry Butts giving delicate floral notes with subtle citrus backnotes.
Editor Choice: First opened in July 1990 by Janet Sheed-Roberts, Granddaughter of William Grant, it has taken over two decades of quiet, patient and devoted care to get to this point - now the third Kininvie house malt is ready for release.
