Whisky review: Glenkinchie 12

I'm typically not a big fan of whiskies from the Scottish Lowlands (which this whisky is) because they're a little too light. Auchentoshan, for example, is even triple distilled (the only scotch to be so) and thus is extremely light.

However, I have this bottle of Glenkinchie 12 left over from a tasting I led, so I thought I'd have a go at it. Here are the notes:

Nose: Grass or wet hay, honey. Some ripe banana.

Palate: Light wood. Under-ripe fruit (green grapes?).

Finish: More light wood, fairly short and dry finish.

Rating (of 100): 70. Overall, an awesome whisky if you have a cold, because the difference between not being able to taste it and being able to taste it is fairly minimal.
