Whisky Reviews for Glen Keith 1993 EL

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.50 points

  1. Andytka3 scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    N- This sample has been sitting in my cupboard over a year, always wanted to try it but always end up "keep this for next times" subconsciously. Quintessential Glen Keith with no surprises with the gummy, wood phenol and hot honey, except this appeared much lighter and elegant. Lemon creme brulee, mesmerizing sweaty sweet with nutty toasted oak. (90/22)

    P- Elegance prevails to palate, oakiness ferrying the well aged goodies of woody waxy honey, bitter chocolate with whiff of bitter menthol phenol. Spicy dry and citrus lasted well and long on palate. (92/23)

    F- Long, relatable to caramelized citrus, rum and spices. Neither heavy nor full, is light but with endless depth and rooms to harbors all flavours, and revealing itself in a gentle pace. (93/23)

    B/B- 92/23. Lovely, well nurtured and remains humble. Not a hammerhead but with amazing depth.

    Weighted Rate- 91pt

    Visually, cloudy yellow-white.
    RGB Color hex 245, 245, 220.

      88 88
      Chinese white pear. Cotton flower bed. Light subtle hints of lime and persimmon.
    • Taste
      90 90
      More pear as before, boiled orchids, dried aged ham, some licorice. Further 15 mins, pepper, sweet honey and cereal. Slightly kippery and fish like from oysters and clams. Could pass off as a french Madeleine pastry.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Short to medium finish. Dry and oaky. Salt and peppery. Vegetative leafyness with either pecan or walnut aftertaste.
