  1. grinface scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    The bottling is simply a dream. Super fruity, still with good complexity. The cask has not dominated, despite the 24 years. And it is an expressive yet classy dram.

      A beautiful combination of ripe fruit. Apricot and banana. In addition biscuit base, herbs and ground coffee. In between there are also a few earthy tones. The whole thing is dipped in lots of honey.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Spicy. This first captures the tongue. It continues salty with a creamy texture. At some point, the fruits come out again. Bananas, also banana chips, papaya and citrus fruits. Plus a good dash of honey.
    • Finish
      91 91
      Sometimes spicy, sometimes warming. Then again fruity and slightly sweet. Also slightly bitter. Then also dry. Banana, mint, latte, some weed. It stays wonderfully long. A few drops of water make it dangerously round on the finish. You will want more!

    A very fruity Glen Keith, with the oak cask providing a very balance palate and finish.

  8. DoctorRockter scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    a really good one:
    nose: wax, vanilla, buttercream, custard, banana, melon (with the addition of two- three drops of water the nose explodes in these flavors in a sublime way) pt 91
    palate: oily, caramel, vanilla, cheeskake, flavors of crunch and crumbly butter cookie, a light cinnamon. I think it leaks with water, I prefer it smooth pt 90
    finish: not very long and persistent, caramelized orange, nutmeg pt 89

    • Nose
      89 89
      Pretty waxy, buttercream, sugarbread, sour pineapple, apple, coconut, warm vanilla custard, a mild herbal note and all kinds of wood shop smells (including some glue).
    • Taste
      90 90
      Oily and creamy, beeswax, tropical fruit galore: pineapple, coconuts, apricots and some bitter citrus. Also clear wood notes with nutmeg and ginger.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Long: a bitter tropical fruit coating, oily, ending with warming wood spices.

    Fabulous

    Passion for Whisky is a well-known Dutch liquor store. Crazy Bert works with them for the first time with this very limited (only 42 bottles) Glen Keith. It cost around 150 EUR but – as is usually the case with this kind of releases – long gone. The rest of the cask (114 bottles) were shipped by Asta Morris to their patner in the Far East, GaiaFlow.

    Wonderfully creamy and fruity nose on banana, apricots, red apples in a frying pan, honey and coconut. Some vanilla and something that brings Mello Cakes to mind. There is a waxy and herbal side to it, giving it depth. A pinch of cinnamon, a leaf of mint and sage. Top.

    Powerful upon arrival, very sweet and spicy. Banana, apricots and coconuts return, joined by some citrussy notes. Think grapefruit and blood oranges. Loads of honey. The spices are loud, but he can handle it. Think cinnamon, allspice and candied ginger. Very complete.

    Fabulously long finish that remains creamy and only offers some tannins at the death.

    Bert needs to reconsider his priorities and stop sending all these goodies to the Land of the Rising Sun. I’m sure it’s good for business, but keeping a bit more of these gems in our neck of the woods would please many. Appreciated.

  22. St. Pauli scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    This is a stunning whisky, fruity, creamy, sweet, yet fresh. It stays exciting thoughout the entire journey from nose to finish. An excellent Glein Keith.
    • Nose

      Colour: old gold
      Appearance: slow, thin legs

      Just as the 1992 and 1993 I've had, this is a fruit driven whisky, but it would not do justice to it to be so narrow in the description. It's nicely creamy, sugared and herbal too, and it has a little spice in it as well. What do you get then?
      Red apple, melon and banana candy, icing sugar, caramel sauce, vanilla custard, coconut, mint and some sweet cinnamon. It's highly enjoyable.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Despite that the alcohol is fairly present, this Glen Keith manages to stay on the creamy side. With water, the sting of alcohol vanishes, giving way to vanilla cream, toast, coconut, baked banana, apple and peach. Towards the end, the mint gives freshness, whereas cinnamon and some sweet ginger give spiciness.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Fairly long, with predominantly fruity and sugared flavours. Toffeed apple, melon, vanilla cream, barley sugar and allspice.
