Whisky Reviews for Glen Keith 1967 GM

7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.85 points

  1. whiskycuse did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Tasting Notes: Nose: wonderfully aromatic from the beginning! Clean sherry, very spicy, but also sweet, with lots of maple syrup, fudge, wood polish, dark berries and tobacco. A very intense citrus note pervades the malt and makes it fresh, and quite a distance I think hints of a hint of smoke. The alcohol is perfectly integrated, and over time, more and more aromas of plum jam, nut chocolate and a certain earthiness prevail.
    Mouth: Strong, but rather slim, elegant, with a clear sherry, but does not appear too dominant. Nutty, again spicy, but also again with this fresh citrusiness, which animates the malt. Clear but clean wood, polish, fine and elegant, quite balanced, later with leathery tones and tobacco.
    Finish: Medium long, dry, slightly astringent, earthy and floral.
    Conclusion: I really enjoyed this dram because it was surprisingly well-balanced and well-geared for Glen Keith's typical fruitiness, despite the sherry and age. Dreamlike aroma, in taste a few percent by volume more might have been able to produce even more power. https://whiskycuse.wordpress.com/

    A great whisky that is not his age. Very powerful, very present although (slightly?) Reduced.
    • Nose
      Immediately peach, apricot, honey and lots of wax. Many citrus also: clementines, bitter orange. It is not alcoholic at all, it is very lively, very fresh. We would not think of a 40 year old whisky at all. At aeration, the whole remains very elegant but the scents mingle. It's more melted. Maybe some slightly acidic (red) fruits.
    • Taste
      Very nice presence. There it is certain, they are red fruits. Maybe blackcurrant, suddenly on cherries. It's pretty sweet but I like it so much that it goes pretty bad usually. A very elegant woody, very present but not at all overwhelming. A lot of macerated grapes, Armagnac style. This mouth is really good, although the sweet side can quickly become tiring.
    • Finish
      Very long on cherries with brandy, Armagnac and these sweet notes.

    A superb sherry, with very interesting red fruits
    • Nose
      very fruity (oranges, peaches) and red fruits very pleasant. Some spices, some malt and coffee.
    • Taste
      A lot of sherry. A little sweet side, again red fruits (as in A Bunadh for example), on coffee, spices, then the woody appears.
    • Finish
      Very long
