    [July, 2018]  A quick review of a sample.

    The colour is pale straw and the texture shows small tears with medium fast legs.  The nose is very fresh on a home-grown fruits profile that reminds me a little of Bladnoch (green apple skins).  After some time of breathing more sugary and malty aromas shine through but all in all it is not overly complex.  It arrives hot and peppery on the palate with a minor coating effect.  The taste is barley sugary sweet with some fruits and rather shy spices from the wood.  The finish is short and adds no new impressions.  Water turns the dram even sweeter but does not release major new aromas or flavours - so if you like sweeter whiskies reduce it, otherwise enjoy it neat.

    This is a typical modern-style whisky from rather sub-standard casks that did not support the spirit's maturation very well.  It is easy drinkable but that's it, usually Glen Keith can offer much more than what is shown by this release...

    I think this cost me around £50-£55 from Strathisla Distillery shop a few months ago.

    This is a good value bottle.

    Pleasant Glen Keith, good value for money.
    • Nose
      Flowers, fruits, honey, vanilla, punch. Cucumber.
    • Taste
      Powerful, bittersweet. Waxy apple and pear, salted caramel and spicy oak.
    • Finish
      Medium length, bittersweet, spicy.

    With water the nose becomes a little floral with more toffee evident.

    Palate is smoother now and spicy so the water has opened it up nicely and the ever so slight bitterness when neat is gone although it was not a problem anyway.
    • Nose
      Apple, honey, plumb, honeycomb, orange liqueur (faint whiffs), trace of peat and biscuit.
    • Taste
      Quite a full mouthfeel, sherry and peat to the fore here mixes in with a little brine, toffee and apple skins.
    • Finish
      Good length but mellow with it.
