Whisky Reviews for Glen Keith 1970 WF

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.17 points

  1. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    A very, very beautiful Glen Keith and a bourbon keg just as nice would have only estimated it at 20-22y, but that does not change how tasty it is.
    • Nose
      Very creamy, beautiful citrus notes, reminds me extremely of treats from the bakery, brioche with lemon cream filling, apricot, powdered sugar, beautiful honey, marshmallows, later a little orange and a touch of exotic, quite aromatic, but now not super strong
    • Taste
      Apricot, the brioche again with the citrus filling, then it is much more exotic than in the nose, mango, clear melon, passion fruit and papaya, the honey again, vanilla, light oak, something floral, very pleasant
    • Finish
      A bit drier and spicier, nutmeg, dry oak, malt is added, only the peel of fruits, especially lemon, apricot and some mango only, heath meadow

  3. magic_slim scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    It will be hard to find any whisky that is as delicious as this 1970 Glen Keith. A clear recommendation.
    • Nose
      Has an extraordinary passion fruit aroma. Dried apricots, vanilla and caramel from the oak participate to result in a very nice nose.
    • Taste
      Warming and to some extent rather spicy (chilli and green pepper). The fruityness is still very obvious. Passion fruit juice concentrate and ripe mangos plus raspberries. Last but not least there are notes of toffee. A spectacular taste!
    • Finish
      Long and spicy.
