Hogshead Cask Nr 100264
Dist. Nov 95 Bottled Dec 2016
Nose: 21/25: Untidy and the odd sign of less the a less of great cask at play
Taste: 23,5/25: Glen Keith can do scary-intense barley like few others distilleries on the planet when it feels like it - and here is with the malt at it most hubristic and noisy. The oak contribution is not helping. But the barley bis irresistible.
Finish 21,5/25: Warms in a slightly threatening manner; the tannins are tight and unfriendly. But the barley and its retinue of light honey tones saves the day.
Balance: One Knight is enough for a delightful rough house like this ...
