Four Corners Glenconchi is a fragrant, fresh and elegant example of a 16-year-old, with subtle creamy traces of fake aroma with notes of baked apple fruit. The texture is luscious and smooth, opening with sweet flavors, followed by a rapid drying and spicy tones that are perfectly balanced by appetizing juicy acidity. Having an attractive taste of white pepper, the finish is elegantly dry and crisp. Reminiscent of the distillery’s rural setting, this exquisite aperitif malt brings a touch of vanilla ice cream, coping with a sharp freshness when pouring water splatter.
