    Glen Keith sits directly behind the Strathisla distillery, both of which are owned by Pernod Ricard but commissioned in the 1950’s by Seagram’s Sam Bronfman, to cope with the growing demand for it’s blends such as Chivas Regal, 100 Pipers and Passport. Mothballed in 1999 and seemingly closed for good, it reopened again in 2013.
    N: Light and youthful sherry-raisin distillate.
    T: Light again, the raisin distillate wrapped in a light oak blanket - classic refill malt.
    F: Light, slightly tannic, barley-spirit finish.
    C: A soft, light dram with a gentle sherry cask influence that allows the distillate to shine at all times.

    Just tasted the 1993 - 2009 from the same series of G & M. If this is just as good as the previous one, there can be little wrong here.
    Nose: This is a lot fuller than the aforementioned and also smelling significantly sweeter. honey, velpon, again chocolate, less fruity than the predecessor, a firm muesli,
    Taste: This is significantly fuller in taste. Thick awkward whisky, very resounding. Cereals, gluey element, back the honey, also somewhat floral but less than the previous ones. The finish and taste are almost in the same line, although the finish here again is more pronounced.
    Conclusion: Tasty whisky, but a bit monotonous than the Glen Keith 1993. That had just that more depth and that little extra. A deluxe carder whisky because he would not survive for an hour with 4 men !! 84/100
