Whisky Reviews for Glen Keith 1985 CA

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.96 points

  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Really great, but I was expecting a slightly more opulent nose. Enthusiasm 4/5
    Whisky n ° 1528
    • Nose
      A max of fresh fruit, apple peel. A light malt from below. Super nice, in a style that I love more. The volume of aromas is not crazy however.
      More dynamic with a few drops of water.
    • Taste
      CA is volume! We find everything we had on the nose, with a touch of honey, sparkling spices, spinning, alternating between a slight dryness and a more fleshy side.
      The spices are multiplied with a little water, which tilts the scales a little too much on the same side.
    • Finish
      Not explosive but persistent. Apricot. More malty with water.

  2. Bishlouk scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    The mouth is monumental, full in the fruity that I love. By cons the nose and the final seduce me (much) less, because I'm not a fan of mint (in the whisky, at least), and even less anise (the Ricard and I are not friends at all) . Difficult to quote in this case, right? So, a first on the Blog: the rating by average! Nose 83 - Mouth 92 - Finale 85 . Which gives (rounded to the nearest) ...
    • Nose
      A lot of things jump in the nose: pear, drops of lemon, green banana. Then quickly it is a mixture of anise and mint that occupies the front of the stage; with even a hint of fennel that invites itself to the party. An unusual aromatic profile! After aeration, the aromatic herbs are wiser, to make the word fruit.
    • Taste
      On the palate, it's something else! Uber frutich (no, I do not speak German, hey then? :-p). Mature peach, pineapple, grapefruit juice. Fresh fruit syrup that flows in the mouth is creamy. Yum !
    • Finish
      Average. The menthol anise comes back, accompanied by spicy spices. The inside of the mouth takes a big fresh shot, style Tic Tac Émile! The fruit syrup goes out in the background.
