Whisky Reviews for Glen Keith 1996 VM

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.11 points

  1. hs305 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    [April, 2018]  Just a quick review of a small sample.  The colour is amontillad and the texture shows many small tears with slow legs.  The nose offers a shy modern sherry profile with home-grown fruits (ripe apples) and herbal aromas.  The whisky arrives warming and a little coating on the palate without distracting moments.  The taste is comparable to the nose, with light sherry flavours and some fruity-sugary sweet aromas in a balanced mix.  The finish is of medium length with a minor drying note at the end (tannins).  Water is not needed (it releases a slight sulphury note of gunpowder).  

    An easy to sip and fine dram without any major highlights or flaws that confirms both:  Glen Keith is a (still) underrated distillery and the nineties are a great decade with usually well-produced whiskies (the boom had not started yet...).
