Whisky Reviews for Glen Keith 1995 Cl

7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.42 points

  1. HammerHead scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    A well balanced lighter whisky with some clear age on it. I disagree with the statement that the nose doesn't show the age. Yes it's all light and delicate, but this level of subtle complexity could never be achieved with only 10 or 12 years of aging. This is properly aged whisky not relying on the often present peat or cask heaviness for a change. Nice to see these kind of bottlings are still available in the current whisky landscape of ever rising fenol levels and treacle coloured sherry monsters.
    • Nose
      90 90
      Light, delicate, pretty floral and very fruity: pineapple, peach, orange, lychee, galia melon, honey, some vanilla and toffee notes, fruitcake, sugar bread, barley sugar and a subtle and mild oak wood note.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Lots of fruit with oranges, lemon, pineapple, peach and some sour apple, also syrupy (canned fruits) and a fudgy sweetness, finally some ginger and bitter oak wood spices.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium length: honey, a fruit syrup note, a light liquorice feel and mildly bitter oak wood.

  2. LDB scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Summery fruity refreshing. Delicious, the bourbon hogshead has made a great whisky.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Bitter orange, slightly tart sparkling like a citrus chewy candy, very light yellow-fruity (grapefruit, ripe lemon, pineapple)
    • Taste
      89 89
      Intense fruity, while refreshingly sour, pronounced ginger note, a spoonful of lemon curd is also there. The alcohol is wonderfully integrated as a flavor carrier
    • Finish
      87 87
      Very gentle and balanced, sweet fruit with subtle oak notes.

  3. PatSch23_12 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      extremely light and delicate, almost shy - absolutely needs time in the glass. Wonderfully tightly woven aromas, mainly ripe fruit such as pineapple (ensures a brittle, tingling moment in the nose), honeydew melon or mandarins. Rich butter biscuits, vanilla pulp and delicate wood flavor
    • Taste
      sour and fruity, the alcohol intensifies the fragile character of Glen Keith very well. Pickled garden fruit, caramel and chocolate oak spices
    • Finish
      gentle and soft without being lax. The oak does not become bitter, mild baking spices and slightly tart fruit bowls

    Not an "in your face" kind of whisky. Maybe a little bit too light and floral but very fruity and easy to drink.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Very floral, fruity almost tropical. Downside, it smells a lot younger then 22y.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Again very fruity, green apples, pears, candy, maybe some kind of tropical fruit (pineapple).
    • Finish
      85 85
      Very fresh, light, medium length
