    There's a treat today! ;) You have to like these sour flavors. All in all an exBourbon Cask Whisky Sour or something like that.

      After certain notes of glue have evaporated (15 minutes in a glass): rhubarb juice, mineral exhibition, then yellow plums, lemon foam cream. All in all on the tart side with sour notes. With time in the background, Sugus pineapple sweets.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Tingle shower, refreshing! Prosecco with limoncello, something cocktail-like with lime wedge and a little sugar syrup. Florida Boy Orange (if anyone says anything about it from the 1970s) with white pepper and then concentrated, slightly sweetened grapefruit.

      The citrus fruits and the wood as well as the surprisingly strong alcohol struggle for balance. Bites a little bit, but remains in the frame. Refreshing and long, you can also say positive about the finish.

    Just a classic Glen Keith that's got it all, white fruits, white flowers, you got it. At a stunning age/price ratio. Much recommended.
    • Nose
      Tons of ripe, sweet white fruits to begin with. Pears in syrup, white peaches, but also tons of flowers, so far I'm thinking honeysuckle and lilac. Charming, in a word. Candyfloss, then elderberry syrup (very clearly), even kiwi ? Aeration complexifies it, with greener notes of sweet herbs like dill, mint, and even a tiny touch of anise. Feminine, fruity, floral, seductive. Adorable.
    • Taste
      Quite a soft attack, but alcohol at least is very well integrated. Then wakes up on a huge flowery puff, with rose petals, honeysuckle, "lily of the valley", almond milk and big vanilla …Fruitiness comes afterwards, with bergamotte, orange blossom, white chocolate, a dash of grapefruit (not the bitter pink ones, the sweeter yellow). Some mineral touches keep it from being too sweet and make the whole seem incredibly "natural".
    • Finish
      Same vein, getting a bit greener, the fruitiness becoming more "naked", less sugary, but same register really. Like a not-too-sweet Tokay.
