  1. hs305 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    [February, 2019] Just a quick review of a sample...

    ...that offers the delicious Glen Keith profile of the nineties which is very quaffable, provided you like home-grown fruits, honeys ad waxes. No flaw or off-note, this is a fine Traditional Scotch.
    • Nose
      89 89
      The colour is pale straw and the nose offers the typical fruity-chalky profile this distillery is famous for. I really like this nose with its home-grown fruits, honeys and waxes, chalky-mineral aromas and spices, of course. It is a little punchy due to the high abv of 56% but it opens up nicely on some water (more fruits and floral notes). No off-note and all very balanced - just as a Traditional Scotch nose should be...
    • Taste
      89 89
      The taste is sweet on honeys and fruits (apples) with waxes and spices join in a later layer. It is nicely chewable and offers vanilla-marzipan flavours this way and a delicious milk chocolatey note towards the finish. All is perfectly balanced again and without any flaw. Water turns the taste smoother and more quaffable but the neat dram is more interesting to me.
    • Finish
      88 88
      The initial mouthfeel is hot (due to the high abv) and coating with a minor bitter-astringent moment (tannins). The finish is of medium length and adds more honeys and chocolatey flavours before the spices take over, finally. No bitter or drying moments here except a minor impression of green tea.

    Thoughts: (90/100) Glen Keith for the win! Another distillery that flies under the radar due to no official bottlings and 99% of it ends up in blends (Chivas Regal). Glen Keith was mothballed from 1999-2013, so you will only find 20+ year old bottlings at this time. When it reopened in 2013 it doubled production capacity to 6 million liters annually. That’s more than Highland Park (2.5m) and Laphroaig (2.7m) put out combined! Goes to show how much demand is still in blends.
    • Nose
      90 90
      Nose: (90) Soft for the abv, slightly dusty, antique-y, melons and wax.
    • Taste
      91 91
      Palate: (91) Fruit bomb! Nice full mouthfeel, Five alive, guava, nectarines, pineapple, mango, citrus, whipped cream, honey. Really great
    • Finish
      89 89
      Finish: (89) Clean, more tropical fruits, pineapple juice, honey, mouth watering. Great.

      Fruit explosion, berry sour, plums, apples, oven cakes with fruit, faint smoke, vanilla, fruit marmalade, wax, honey, salinity of seafood, a mix of stewed vegetables, notes of white dessert wine, a hint of fried bacon, salted apels crispy white bread, condensed milk.

      Long, knitting, continued flavor, citrus-tropical fruit mix (embodied in Skitles candies), a little pepper and ginger bitterness.
