  1. stf92 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    I found it with little interest in opening my sample months ago.
    Not very fruity and too much alcohol. The weather has been good, many months alcoholic and much more fruity, including lemon on the palate.
    Beautiful evolution!

    • Finish
      Apricot, honey and apple.

    Nice fresh nose on honey, apricot, wax, cooked apple and strawberry. After a long aeration, a wet stone side appears. The mouth is sweet, on praline, unctuous, like coconut oil, that now I find on the nose. The finish has no astringency, pastry, on almond. Beautiful whisky.

  4. Berrysaki scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    • Nose
      Floral, fruity, a bit of eucalyptus. A bit of orange.
    • Taste
      warm mouthfeel, orange, a hint of vanilla, slightly bitter aftertaste. Dried grass. A bit peppery as well.
    • Finish
      Lightly oaked bitterness stays for a while, but the initial tastes don't last that long. Nice dram though!

  5. St. Pauli scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Always a pleasure to taste a 1992 Glen Keith, this is no exception. Wonderfully fruity and oily, with a nice balance brought by floral notes, creamy vanilla, oak, and gentle spices. 
    • Nose
      Initially: friendly, fresh, fruity and floral. The combination of grass and mint gives you also a mineral side to this dram. Furthermore, there are breakfast cereals with juicy sultanas and creamy vanilla yogurt. Gradually, the nose reveals more fruit: tinned peaches, apricot, banana and juicy plums. Still, the fruit is counterbalances by the herbal notes and furniture polish. Excellent.
    • Taste
      Full, oily, sweet and spicy. The fruit is abundantly available (both the yellow fruit and the sultanas), just as vanilla cream, mint, but also sawdust and leather polish. Some pepper and cinnamon too.
    • Finish
      The finish is still very fruity, a bit more grassy than the palate, and some polished oak. It's nicely spicy with mainly cinnamon and a bit of pepper. 

  6. Pépé scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    A moderately fruity whisky, a bit austere and slightly dirty spices. Well, why not. Mouth below and alcohol moderately integrated
    • Nose
      Blind: We are in a fruity register, halfway between the orchard of apricots, peaches and fields of citrus, lemon and bergamot. It is certainly not 40-43%, but it does not have a big exuberance so far. A whisky quite direct and clean, with a mineral side and floral waves not quite fresh: clove, tobacco, pepper!
    • Taste
      Incisive, a little bitterness. Citrus in mind, pepper again. The finish will be more on the fruit of the orchard and sweet-vanilla hints. Quite limited development
    • Finish
      Not really long

  7. tomy63 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    pale gold color, fruity nose, lots of yellow fruits, peach, a little vanilla and coconut in the background, simple but effective. Mouth light, fruity, even more ripe than the nose, melon, passion, mango, a little sour side, then spices on the finish. Average length, the final lacks a little fruit, more on spices. A whisky very fruity and easy, maybe a little simple.

  8. Bishlouk scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Back on this Glen Keith after several months of bottle opening.
    Always quite alcoholic, peppered, "get inside". Not enough greedy or round for my taste for a Glen Keith. I find it quite disappointing.

    Amended note from 85 to 83.

  9. Bishlouk scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Note made at the bottle opening.

    Very changeable whisky on the nose, more monolithic in the mouth. Very powerful at the opening of the bottle, very sharp on pepper.
    To revisit in a few weeks.
    • Nose
      Pear-based: stewed, candied. White fruits. A pinch of ginger.
      After the nose is refreshing eucalyptus. Honey appears.
      Still after, chemical bubble gum.
      A beautiful evolution of the nose over time.
    • Taste
      Peppery pear, lots of spices. A bourbon side.
      Vanilla, honey.
    • Finish
      Average final.
      Turpentine in the throat, and a drought settles. Pepper explosion.
