9 users have left 10 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 88.41 points.

  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    For me the nose is much better than the taste. Especially the finish is too bitter for me. High score for the nose though.
    • Nose
      Nose needs some time to come through. But then very
      fresh and sweet. Apple pie, granny smith apples. Some hints of peppermint.
      Complex and attractive.
    • Taste
      Powerful, creamy with a warm mouth feel. Honey and sweet barley. Later on some spice.
    • Finish
      Medium. Peppery and bitterness.

  4. Kostya scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    (a
    sample) a nice style of malt, it’s sweet and easy going, but flavors are well
    definable and rounded
    • Nose
      (neat) very nice
      and inviting nose with fresh fruits, honey, mint
      (water) sweet and luscious, malty,
      bailey’s creme, condensed milk
    • Taste
      (neat) sweet and
      bitter, vanilla, honey, hard pear, ginger and lemon juice
      (water) ginger, honey, notes of
      grass, chili pepper, vanilla, turns sour into development
    • Finish
      fairly
      long, very easy and pleasant, sweet, vanilla, honey, white chocolate

  5. Cicero did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    one of the weaker malts of Anam Na h-Alba
    • Nose
      fresh citrus notes, mandarin, malt, popcorn
    • Taste
      Sweet and sweet again, light tingling, citrus, coconut, caramel popcorn
      with a little bit of water the malt becomes a bit milder and more harmonious

  6. Volanne scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    A queer mixture; some nice fruity notes and a heavy dry woodiness. Like pouring a nice 1991 Lochside in a low grade cask.

    Tasted blind for whisky-distilleries.info WDTS:http://www.whisky-distilleries.info/WhiskyWDTS/index_EN.shtml
    • Nose
      When I first nosed this one, directly from the bottle, it seemed really sexy to me with lots of very ripe banana, custard and creme brulee. From the glass, seems much more austere, like straitjacketed by whiffs of straight alcohol. White orchard fruits (apples and pears) jump to the foreground, along with pure lemon juice and an obvious grassy side.
    • Taste
      Grassy it is, and quite hot, but with a pleasant soft vanilla touch. Icing sugar, and after a while, a slight hint of nectarine lost in a heavy woody and liquoricy dryness that keeps growing at the same pace than the alcohol (55 % ?).
    • Finish
      Long, dry, bitter, quite astringent, it leaves your mouth like anesthetized.

  7. Erik Elixir scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    N: nice bourbon fruits - apple, peach and pine apple, some herbs, almond, honey, creamy and vanilla
    T: spices - nutmeg, vanilla, fruits, some lemon and older wood
    F: spices, vanilla and some syrup
    compared with Glen Keith 1992 ANHA 120602 5 month oloroso finish

  8. Erik Elixir scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    two third of the cask http://www.whiskybase.com/whiskies.php?merkid=130&whiskyid=39923 the third of this Glen Keith is finish for 5 months on an Oloroso Sherry cask

  9. Jean-Brice scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    a beautiful highland whisky that may be aged in a bourbon barrel. I like this kind of malt even if the complexity is relatively average. The pleasure in any case is there and especially thanks to the length in the mouth.

    Tasted in blind under the WDTS
    • Nose
      I will say typical Highlands !! First, a lot of yellow fruits. Vanilla in abundance. A little coriander and mustard seed. Apricot jam . Then, as you breathe, frank notes of ripe bananas. A hint of minerality in the second nose.
    • Taste
      in the prolongation of the nose. Pretty powerful
    • Finish
      very long on the mustard seed and candied fruit.

  10. Dr.Nose scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    My review after a blind tasting.
    • Nose
      In the beginning only freshness. Just after a few minutes there appear more sweet fruity notes (apricot / pineapple) upwards in combination of malty tones, vanilla and some wood.
    • Taste
      Soft, sweet and spicy.
    • Finish
      Medium long, spicy and some slightly bitterness at the end.

  11. markjedi1 scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    This is a wonderful
    Glen Keith and the best bottling I have come accross from this Indie until
    today. 91 EUR? Well, a point
    for every euro. It is that good.
    • Nose
      Fruity and sweet,
      that is how I would describe the nose. Malt, sugar candy, vanilla, upholstered
      with gooseberry and caramelized apple and pineapple cubes. Dried flowers. But it definitely shows an overdose of
      toffee. Milk chocolate! Fairly complex and oh, so good. I love this.
    • Taste
      Round and creamy on
      the palate, making me happy. Even
      fruitier now, with some citrus and exotic fruit to join the apple and
      pineapple. Mango, mirabels,
      melon. The toasted oak gives it a bitter edge, perfectly dosed. Nicely spiced as well. Pepper, ginger, liquorice, even
      a touch of chili.
    • Finish
      The finish is warm
      and long, feisty on toffee, citrus and spices.
