Nose

Fresh on the nose with lingering vanilla sweetness, toffee and a delicate citric fruitiness. Becomes more fruity and juicy with time, packed with peach, apricot, mirabelle, yellow plum and mango. Liquorice with honey and a slight touch of oak spice in the back. Very appealing and inebriant!

Taste

Very fruity start on the palate! Tropical and orchard fruits - peach, banana, tangerine, mango, orange and pear, intermingle with a delicious sweetness of vanilla and toffee. This is all complemented by a massive load of warming spices - white pepper, ginger, oak and soft herbs. Once the spiciness fades away, sticky honey and plum jam linger with a fine note of cinnamon towards the finish.

Finish

Quite a long and fruity finish with a gentle herbal note of orange peel. Sweet honey with a hint of drying oak and subtle peppery heat in the aftertaste.

WITH WATER: As the fruitiness keeps on going, the vanilla sweetness and toffee notes are tamed by a splash of water, bringing notes of prickling oak to the fore. Still sweet and fruity on the palate with less warming spices. The finish is long, fruity, citrusy, with delicate cinnamon and drying oak on the tail.

Comments

This Glen Keith is simply excellent! An easy to drink perfect fruity style. A superb example of the fruity delight American Oak can bring to Scottish whisky. It’s more than fruit as there’s also great balance and an harmonious backbone of warmth, spiciness and oak. I prefer this fruity beauty neat. Sip, relax and you will feel in heaven.

I thank Dailydram.de for the sample!
