- I found sample #12 of the BTC 2014 still half full. Lucky me! What a fantastic dram.
Figs, damp hay, dirt, wood chips covered in sweet honey, sultana, overripe red fruit, some mint,
First sweet honey, then sweet red fruit, then dark chocolate, figs, raisins, wood. The development is superb!
Long, only sightly bitter. Overripe red fruits in the back of the tongue, dark chocolate, dark sugar all die off slowly
- Interesting, rather dry, vanilla-tropical, fruity mole, a very peculiar, but attractive, spacer.
Open, moist, floral-herbal, notes of fat and wet wool, green apple, drying plaster, sweet wool, Turkish sweets, anise, feijoa, vanilla, coconut.
Saturated, oak, lemon, orange, apricots, some tropical fruits, pineapple, lacquer notes.
Spicy, kumquat, candied fruits from kiwi, orange, creamy notes, something floral-perfumery, vanilla, coconut.
- A whisky that works wonderfully. Not ultra complex but really easy and sexy.
Immediately very fruity: fresh fruit, juicy peaches, apricots and bananas walls. Slightly tart (harlequin candies?). There is also a lot of wax candle, encaustic but the whole remains fresh. At aeration, more lemony.
Rich and fat. We are in the continuity with always this mixture of fruits well walls with a small tip of exoticism (khaki) and the wax which is very present. Bitterness too, quinine. From the middle of the mouth, the wax turns into honey. Yum
Very long, sweet. Honey and fruits.
- Nose: A big big sherry dominated nose, really a beauty. The whole nine yards with the dried fruit, sultana, fig and date, but some damp oak too, which might hint to age… I am sensing some smoke too here. shoot me.
Palate: BIG abv going on here, 50’s I think. with a lot of sherry, which is no surprise, some salted caramel, and sugary backbone with a nice oaky balance to it all. good stuff.
Finish: Long, sherry, dried fruit, oak.
All in all this is a cracking dram! sherry galore, a bit of caramel and a slightly smoky feeling to it too. I like it very very much, much more than previous days!
- blind tasting BTC 2014 - #12
wax, citrus, pastry, nuts - hazelnuts, fudge and coconut
floral, sweet sherry, sugared nuts, citrus - lemon and spices
medium drying with citrus, spices and a touch of smoke
- There are some very pleasant aroma's and flavors in there, but I find it a bit too simple to get a higher score.
Waxy, citrus and freshly cut grass. Some sherry aromas but also some coconut, banana, vanilla. A nutty quality, almonds maybe. The nose does get mustier with time passing.
Oily and creamy. Waxy again, but also honey and some dried fruits. Very smooth palate. Ginger, grapefruit, and apple. Fairly spicy and oaky.
Peppery, wood spices, coconut. A bit dry and slightly bitter.
- Blind tasting of a sample in BTC 2014.
Banana, roasted almond, caramel, apple, plum, peach and raspberry. With water more lime and a little honey.
Almond, caramel, banana, perhaps a little peach. But also roses, that's interesting.
Caramel, almond, chestnut, peach, a little pepper, mint and a whiff of smoke. Again very dry.
- Definitely, I find that there are some very interesting things at Glen Keith ...
Nose very fruity, and at the limit of the liquoreux. Pear syrup, dry white grapes, some dusty spices. Apricot goes from time to time.
Wow, a nice sensation invades the mouth. Apricot, mango, full of juicy white and yellow fruits.
A little alcoholic kick. A slight bitterness of citrus zest. A sweet and mellow return on the tongue.
