    Some time needed in the glass. Lots of yellow(ish) fruits in the nose (citrus, pear). Some spices present. Still quite soft due to its age. Alcohol well integrated. Good stuff.

  5. Highlander65 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Pale yellow color. Very particular whisky, sweet nose and citrusy palate, incredibly docile the almost 56% alcohol. Not big differences with and without water. Great drink.
    • Nose
      The initially floral nose is followed by a very light citrus note and then becomes more full-bodied and sweet, bourbon style, with a hint of tobacco. In all this riot of perfumes, alcohol is not perceived in the least. With 4 drops of water it becomes more delicate and a note of bread appears.
    • Taste
      light and fresh body, very lemon, slightly spicy, less sweet than I expected. Alcohol is also barely perceptible in the mouth. With 4 drops of water it stays spicy and still feels lemon, but becomes a little tannic
    • Finish
      Long finish, all about lemon and spices, towards the end an astringent sensation.

    Nice, lots of pear. Yummy!

  8. wisekyofcourse scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    a sweet 20 years, a basic whisky with yellow fruit, juicy, sweet, vanilla, malt well present and a little sweet spices that still under the scents.
    a little grassy bouquet and a basket of varied fruits in the mouth, a slightly honeyed side that gives even more sweetness and passes the alcohol without any problem!

    Great price for a 20 year old Glen Keith. Good amount of sweetness. Fruity nose, full bodied malt on the palate and very straigth forward. No surprises, very decent and good.
