KVSM001 Single Malt Scotch Whisky £35.00

Kininvie Single Malt Scotch Whisky KVSM001


Single Malt Scotch Whisky


50CL | Non-Chill Filtered | ABV 47%

The first release from Kininvie Works.

Objective: To investigate triple distillation mass balance used in Irish distillation processes to see what can be applied to our own Scotch whisky distilling.

Experiment: Establish the parameters to allow a third distillation process in the distillery. Run one week’s production using these parameters and compare.

Observations: We could see from the high wines/strong feints that the alcohol and esters are much higher. This is evident in the nosing – where we got very fruity esters with pear drops/candy notes.

This is our first release from an experiment at Kininvie Works to investigate triple distillation mass balance. The resulting whisky has notes of pear drops and sweet candy. The parcel of Malt selected to bottle for this release have been aged in Ex Bourbon American Oak Casks filled in 2013.

When comparing this parcel of Malt to a typical Kininvie of the same age and cask type, we found a clear difference in the flavour profile. This was explained by a distinct increase in the total number of ester compounds, including small chain flavour compounds, when going from a standard Kininvie spirit to a triple distilled Kininvie spirit.
