Whisky Reviews for Glen Keith Distillery Edition

- Actually a very surprising whisky, very fresh and fruity. Especially the nose jumps out, in body and finish the 40% is more recognizable. But overall a pretty pleasant whisky, and a bang for your buck in my opinion.
Fruity, orange, citrus, honey. Very fresh, some vanilla, floral too.
Soft and smooth, fruity, orange. A very little bit tingling, honey, some vanilla and caramel now. A bit thinny mouthfeel.
Soft and smooth, a little bitterness now, orange zest. Honey, sweet, a little vanilla. Not very long.
- Thanks to karloff for the sample.
It's a 40% NAS, but at least it's uncoloured and unfiltered.
I usually don't concider to buy bottles I rate below 80, but if I find this at £25 I would happily make an exception.
Light, fresh and fruity.
Sweet citrus, pear, iced tea.
Noticable burst of spice, but it doesn't overpower anything else.
Right after swallowing I get a hint of some scented detergent or air freshener that I can't name.
That iced tea note returns.
Very short, but refreshing.
- I have to agree with tomjcollins85. For the price and as far as Nas go this isn't bad at all. I've had a lot worse that cost a lot more.
Orange peel, honey nut cornflakes, lemon grass, green grapes, wet pile of logs, stewed vegetables and apple pie crust sprinkled with sugar.
Nothing special about this but nothing wrong with it either. A no brainer shall we say. Something to sip and not think about too much. It hits a note and stays there. Fruit, honey and grassy flavours.
The finish is short but not bad. Sugar and spice on the death.
- Absolutely nothing wrong with this for the price (I paid £20).
Nose is has a lot of vanilla, cream and green fruit.
After a while in the glass, there's more fruit and what I can only describe as my Grandad's old working shead, when I was younger (wood shavings, old paint).
Mouth continues with the fruit and vanilla. Relatively sweet on first taste. I could not pick out much more, but there were some woody flavours also.
Finish was short, quite dry.
When you think of the price and compare this to a modern £1500 Macallan, you're left scratching your head as to modern day prices. A great bargain-basement drink!
