    Great ! Enthusiasm 5/5 Whisky n ° 1289
    • Nose
      Waw! Peach syrup. Intense ! Toffee and fresh fruit, the first taking over. Wood, vanilla, feminine scent. With a little water, more greedy on the toffee, and slightly exotic acidulated fruits.
    • Taste
      Fruit / spice / malt bomb! Weight and body build in the mouth. Juicy with a little water, sweet spices.
    • Finish
      Caressing and spicy.

    A gorgeous nose hints at some complex tones that might get incoherent, and both the palate and the finish seem to confirm that. The spicy-legumin field brings some undeniable complexity but I'm not sure it merges totally well with the rest of the Glen Keith aromatic arsenal. Still though, some episodes of the nose were utterly splendid and the palate's evolution is nice.
    • Nose
      Apples, lily of the valley, white grapes, gooseberries, rosewater, turkish delights, chlorine and wax, white flowers galore and elderberry, and on top of all that the sweetest citrus fruits. Long story short, that typical sweet-acidic-delicate trio : yes, that's a Glen Keith, and a pretty splendid one nose-wise so far. What's far more suprising is the other side of the nose, which shows many pastry notes (brownie, icing) with many spicy tones : laurel, cloves, curry, houmous, yeast, a truckload of fern ... That second aromatic field would evoke a dry sherriness, yet there's none of it here ... very intriguing ! Wasn't expecting this kind of complexity ! It's true it's not uncommon to find an herbal side in GK, but I never experienced that before. Later stabilizes on a main white chocolate note.
    • Taste
      Blo said the arrival wasn't the easiest, and I agree, it's a bit harsh. But fruits are back soon : white grapes, pears, sweet citrus, mirabelles, unripe peaches, rhubarb, that waxiness again ... Just as in the nose, the pastry side then follows : croissant, icing, various cakes, rhum baba (indeed Blo, seems like I'm not dreaming !). And then again those weird spicy notes : legumin (chick peas, quinoa, sesame), laurel and fern, pepper, ...
    • Finish
      Sesame indeed, that spicy-legumin side now dominates, and it gets quite austere, with strong tea, tree bark, fern again, nutshells ... Later though, sweetness comes back, with these various cakes, wax, and our beloved flowers. Not the best part though, lacks some freshness.

    Nose very good, difficult mouth, final much better. Indecent price. In the end I am a little disappointed overall, even if it remains globally a good whisky.
    • Nose
      Fresh and floral, on the spring flowers. Strong bole influence, notes of vanilla custard cream, rum baba and whipped cream. A lot of fruit too, especially citrus fruits, caked pills. Nice nose.
    • Taste
      Always floral, but much drier, and quite woody. Fruity, on plum and yellow melon. A bit bitter. Mouth really not obvious.
    • Finish
      Average, with the return of the pastry notes interviewed on the nose. A touch of acidulated.

    LMDW tasting note

    Color: bright gold. Nose: ample, complex. The first nose lays on its circumference perfumes of heady flowers (carnation) and white (lily of the valley). The center of the aromatic palette is occupied by vanilla pods, acacia honey and aromatic plants (chervil, sage). Then, it gradually becomes woody and fruity (William pear, Golden apple). Palate: both firm and unctuous. Very mineral (chalk, shale), its attack is also full of ripe fruit (cherry plum, white peach, pomelo). With its pressed citrus notes (lemon, grapefruit), the mid-palate slightly tightens the taste buds. Incredibly long, it is more and more praline, minty and empyreumatic (eucalyptus). With time, spices (coriander, clove) gradually appear. Final: long, greedy. With a lot of freshness, it became milky (coconut almond) almost vanilla. On the aromatic, very tertiary (Russian leather, Armenian paper), the end of mouth goes from vanilla to dark chocolate. The retro-olfaction makes us even enjoy a delicious hot chocolate flavored with juniper berries. Empty glass has come closer to malted barley and more precisely green malt.
