This new limited-edition series of single malts, commemorates the transformation of Diageo’s brand homes at its Glenkinchie, Cardhu, Caol Ila and Clynelish distilleries.
The four distilleries represent the ‘four corners of Scotland’ and its regional whisky variations; Lowland - Glenkinchie, Speyside - Cardhu, Islay - Caol Ila and Highland - Clynelish, which are at the heart of Diageo’s Johnnie Walker blended Scotch whisky range.
Four Corners of Scotland Glenkinchie 16 Year Old, which is said to be a fragrant, fresh and elegant single malt, delivers notes of baked apple combined with subtle creamy mossy aromas. The texture is said to be luscious and smooth, opening with sweet flavours, swiftly followed by slightly drying and spicy tones which are balanced by appetising juicy acidity.
The launch follows yesterday’s news of the opening of a new multi-million pound visitor attraction at the Glenkinchie Distillery, as part of a £185 million investment by Diageo in Scotch whisky experiences.
Limited to 2,502 bottles, Four Corners of Scotland Glenkinchie 16 Year Old, will be available later this month exclusively from the Glenkinchie Distillery, for a RRP of £150.00.
