Nose

Very fruity, starting on lemon and crisp grapes (Riesling) to a more tropical profile (grapefruit, peach). The oak shows rather by coconut than vanilla. There is certainly a green side to it (mint).

Taste

It has a perfect mix between sweet and (pleasantly) sour. It's very fruity, on grapes, apple, lemon, tropical fruit salad, pepper, mint and grass. 

Finish

Long and pleasant. The fruit still dominates, counterbalanced by malt, grass and vanilla. A little pepper is there, but not with a disturbing and drying influence.

Comments

Not overly complex, but lovely and fruity. 

Cheers! Paul

Nose

Starts with sweety fruitiness of pineapple, papaya and lychees. Marzipan. Honey and vanilla custard. Fresh flowery notes as well. Some mint.

Taste

Waxy and oily. Now oranges and tangerines. Bitter notes of grapefuit. Light oakiness with a metalic edge (but not at an annoying level). Lots of cinnamon.

Finish

Quite long. Sweet bananas. Becomes more peppery. Also nutmeg and some salt.

Comments

A nice surprise by my FOTB buddy Dennis; fruit bomb Glen Keith!

Glen Keith 21 yo 1992/2013 (49.5%, Tasting Fellows, barrel, cask #120610, 180 bottles) Four starsColour: pale gold. Nose: it’s a rather grassy whisky again at first nosing, with cut grass (bravo again!), broken branches, leaves, then rather more vanilla and touches of menthol. Develops more on ripe plums, apricots and a little fresh butter, with also a little sweet beer just like in the Strathmill. Goes more and more towards fruitsalady (!) notes, which isn’t uncommon with middle-aged Glen Keith. Mouth: it’s a very fruity one right from the start, with pineapple juice and a little coconut milk, then more butterscotch, caramel (Werther’s) and vanilla. Good grassy foundation, with even touches of salt. Also raisins and a little honey, then bitterer fruits such as grapefruits. This is excellent, I think. Finish: very long and much grassier. Fresh wood. Not my favourite part, but it’s all right. Comments: these 1992 Glen Keiths are almost always excellent. Pretty high standard. SGP:551 - 87 points.

Nose

Rund, mild, ausgewogen. Kokosmilch, schöne Bourbon-Vanille, dazu noch leichte Zitrusaromen.

Taste

Hmm, leckere Vollmilchschokolade mit höchstens 30% Kakaoanteil. Nach einer Weile entpuppen sich auch mittelschwere Traubenaromen. Ein paar Tropfen Wasser verträgt er schon und lässt dann umso mehr Raum für die Vanille-/Karamellseite. Sehr stimmig und rund, ähnlich wie in der Nase ohne große Ecken und Kanten. Eher ein feiner Tropfen.

Finish

Mittellang ohne neues zu präsentieren.

Comments

Glen Keith aus 1992 hatte ich nun schon ein paar und ich muss sagen, dass dieser Jahrgang mich bisher nicht enttäuscht hat. Dieser ist dabei nicht ganz vorn dabei, aber muss sich überhaupt nicht verstecken. Gefällt mir.
