Whisky Reviews for Glen Keith 1991 AD
6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.34 points
- Very sweet and fruity, but also very strong on alcohol as well. It's intense from the nose till the finish, a little less alcohol-driven would have made this one even better. Still a great whisky though.
Fruity, citrus, vanilla, a little grassy as well. Strong, intense, pretty much alcohol stinging in the nose but somehow it doesn't bother me.
Strong, a lot of pepper, tingling, intense. Sweet and fruity, peach and orange. Later on it gets less hefty (or perhaps mouth gets used to the strong alcohol), more sweetness now like honey.
Still pretty strong, sweet and fruity, peach, vanilla. Pretty long finish, intense. Also some wood now.
- Grape juice, peaches, pine trees, smurf berries, vanilla, black current, light chocolate, cool and refreshing. An alfalfa field
- Tasting Notes by Adelphi;
1 of only 138 bottles from cask no. 73667
From an American oak ex-bourbon barrel. Pale amber with light beading, but big beads. Some nose prickle to start with; underneath, a light fruitcake, with dried apricots and angelica. Soon becomes denser – now alcoholic trifle, with custard, sponge fingers, maraschino cherries and cream. The nose continues to open, now somewhat nose-drying with a very interesting earthy note. Sweet and fruity (boiled sweets), to taste, with a trace of white chocolate in aftertaste. More estery with water: warm vinyl, wildflowers (light fragrance), Sweet and pleasant. An ideal tea-time dram with a trace of blackcurrant in the after-taste.
First of: fruity & waxern, a lot of red apples (fresh, the peel, and a few fermented ones), a few gooseberries, sweaty/salty, slightly farmy (hay & cow dung) and a sprinkle of coal dust, (92)
A bit later: fruit turns broader, apples, strawberries, raspberries, mirabelles, all slightly overly ripe bordering on fermenting, somewhat nutty, (93)
W water: fresher & more on yellow fruits, less ripe & heavy, (90)
dense but fresh, alc noticeable at first, but makes way for a nice fruityness and very pleasant malt notes with a bit of beeswax, (91)
w water: more mineral, slightly salty, then the beeswax & fruits creep back in. (90)
very long, more fruits once the alcohol subsides, with a sweet/sour touch, now guava, oranges, strawberries, vanilla pods & white chocolate interchanging. (93)
w water: very similar in the finish, slightly more focussed on malt & white chocolate now. (92)
