    Top Dram

    I discovered this Glen Keith at the whiskyfestival Sprits in the Sky in November 2018. It was however bottled for the Whisky Fair in Germany. Apparently a few bottles found their way to my neck of the woods. This Speysider, bottled by The Nectar of the Daily Drams, was distilled in 1993. You already know that 1990s Glen Keith rarely disappoints. So expectations for this one are high.

    The nose is surprisingly closed at first. It takes quite a bit of patience (and hand warmth) to get it to reveal itself. My first impression is guimauve (I have found this in Glen Keith before), green banana and ferns. Quite waxy, actually. Hint of white chocolate and a slice of pineapple. A touch herbal.

    Wonderfully creamy on the palate, but fairly hot. Next to the guimauve and banana (more ripe than on the nose) and cooked fruits. The prelude to an apricot marmalade, so to speak. Hint of coconut. Caramelized ginger and some liquorice. A bitter touch as if from Seville oranges and some lemon juice. Very balanced, it has to be said.

    The finish is long, with again guimauve, banana and some ginger.

    Top dram, but no longer available, I’m afraid.

    [Festival note, take with a grain of salt] I adore Glen Keith when it's able to avoid its two main traps, the first one being over-sweetness and the second one being the bugging salty vegetal side that some of them have. This one avoids both of these problems fortunately, but some of its sides might appear "borderline" to newcomers or scepticals, like this idiosyncratic light floral soapiness. Other than that, it's only lacking a tiny bit of fruits to be a total winner of a GK in my eyes. Very good nonetheless.
    • Nose
      Typical. Cake icing as usual with Glen Keith, but within limits here. White fruits and vegetal freshness offer a nice balance with an alcohol that gives an austere and rather "linear" structure.
    • Taste
      Idiosyncratic as well, with mint toothpaste and lemongrass, various citrus with lime at the front row, and even - as sometimes - a tiny bit of acidic lychee. The usual floral grandma soap bar is here, but within limits, and it's always been part of these feminine Glen Keith's charm for me. A certain alcoholic rigor once again.
    • Finish
      Same vein, fresh, citrusy, leafy, acidic.
