Whisky Reviews for Glen Keith 1997 SV

12 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.45 points

  1. Totoro scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Elegant, fruity-floral Glen Keith with a pronounced dry and mineralic side. A lot of acidity throughout, which makes for a perfect aperitif and/or summer whisky.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Pear compote, vanilla custard, nutmeg, aloe vera, a dash of Schweppes Bitter Lemon. More fruity and less waxy than WID 86084; with more prominent citric and floral notes and an extra helping of pears. Seems a bit younger in sum. Still very good, though, displaying the same dusty and mineral aspects. Lovely, soft spices and understated, dry oak tones. Needs a bit of time in the glass. Water makes it more fragrant and floral and brings out more oils, making for a creamier, richer impression. Close to 89 points with water. Recommended!

      Creamy and soft to start, then increasingly tart and spicy, with a substantial bitter citrus side. Takes water well, becoming more sweet and welcoming. In contrast to my comparison dram (see WID above), the oak is less peppery and present here, which is a plus.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Predominantly dry, with soft oak spice, bitter lime, and just a sprinkling of brown sugar. Sweeter with water (again: recommended).

  2. craide scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Great malt taste. Combination of flavors on the palate is a tad better and more varied than on the nose. All in all, however, very interchangeable.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Soft, not very intrusive bourbon note. A little caramelized popcorn, a little solvent, vanilla sweetness, looks grassy, somehow floral, summery. Smell of flower meadow with fruity notes of pears, apples, bananas as a thickened compote. slightly mineral.
      Every now and then a subtle citrus note flashes.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Creamy, soft, almost watery beginning. But that is only the case for a short time until a good portion of oak spice hits the ground. Tingling, slightly peppery and hot. Great seasoning! Not intrusive but beautifully striking. There are also fruit and a slightly sour citrus note.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Medium-long finish, becoming dry, less spicy, light vanilla sweetness

  9. Whisky Hamster scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    This one has potential but kinda hard to open up. Probably need much air and can take some water. Has a distinct malty sweetness together with fruit, the latter more on the nose than on the palate. Not a complexity monster or a rare exceptional bourbon cask, but overall very decent! Tastes younger, the 22 years of maturation don't really show that much.
