  1. LeChiffre scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Very nice malt. Lies well creamy-oily with great fruity note in the mouth. Overall, quite soft in the taste. Does not need water. The price is quite high.

  3. Totoro scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Too harsh / acidic / oaky for me in undiluted form. Though it's a refill, the hoggie has been very active, with a lot of green, peppery, gingery oak influence as a result. I've encountered this style a number of times in the revamped GM range, and I'm not a fan.
    Glen Keith at this age can be so beautifully rich and creamy, and the nose here is still promising, but on the palate the cask overpowers it almost completely.
    Water remedies the situation somewhat, but everything still remains pretty tart, acidic and peppery. Not ideal, if you ask me.

      86 without, 88 with water.

      There are flashes of what it could have been, but as things stand it's mostly tart, acidic oak juice... Very one-sided.
    • Finish
      80 80
      Lemony, oaky, and bitter.

  4. Issie did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Lemon, sawdust, some menthol, honey, herbs, grasses, herb candy, a very subtle fruity note: apple, grapes, peach, pineapple

      Here the fruits are more in the background and grasses / herbs in the foreground. Looks lively and fresh
    • Taste
      Honey, cereals, herb candy, peach, apple, pear, lime, caramel, a little pepper

  5. craide scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Delicious, round, harmonious whisky. For me, the price is a bit too normal and interchangeable.
    • Nose
      87 87
      light, fresh, fruity sweet beginning, green apples, pears and a little ripe banana, with a nice rich malt smell with a little vanilla and caramel. In the background, somewhat grassy notes of fresh hay develop; goes in the direction of fresh sourdough. Pleasant on the nose, alcohol is slightly stinging at first, but evaporates quickly. Everything nice and harmonious and round. But not really anything special either.
    • Taste
      87 87
      softer, somewhat dry beginning, then the peppery sharpness comes through, spice, and fruity after apple and pear. Here the slightly sour note of bread dough comes through a little more intensely. Maybe it's citrus or grapefruit notes. Slightly sweet after caramelized sugar. Delicious, but also very down to earth. I already miss a few exciting notes at the price.
    • Finish
      86 86
      medium-long finish, sweet and dry, slightly bitter after coffee
