    Nose: Immediately fruity, a mix of ripe citrus notes, apricots and plums. Pretty closed and not very complex at first. So put some water in it! It opens quickly, has lots of coconut, marzipan, actually reminds me of the fruitiness that I find in a simple Ruby port. The longer the water is in my dram, the more wiry and mineral it becomes, losing something of its creamy sweet appearance.
    Mouth: Strong, despite the water with alcoholic touch, but rather slim and not as sweet, as expected. The fruit is now in the background, but I have a lot of floral, honey, even with some soil and amazing herbal tonicity. Again some marzipan, light nuttiness, fine elegance.
    Finish: Long, herbal-toned, but with some vanilla and minerality.
    Conclusion: I have to say that at first glance I expected more from this whisky, and I especially missed the sweet fruitiness on the palate, which is more common in earlier Glen Keith vintages. Yet, this malt has wonderful qualities that remain a little hidden when approached too quickly and hastily. If you give it time in the glass and a few drops of water, then it shows a very elegant and fine malt. https://whiskycuse.wordpress.com/
