    Guimave

    The Italian/Scottish duo that runs the independent bottler Valinch & Mallet are very picky about the individual casks they select for bottling. Only when both are absolutely convinced, will they put it out to market. This Glen Keith was released in their so-call Lost Drams Collection. The whisky matured for no less than a quarter century.

    Very bright and fruity nose on all kinds of summery fruit, but also quite a bit of coconut and banana with a lovely hint of guimauve – something I do not often get but when I do, it always makes me happy. Soft on the spices with some touches of oak, but also some menthol keeping it fresh. It smells younger than what the label says.

    Wonderfully sweet, but with a sour touch underneath, making it very interesting. It bursts with fruit, but now it’s more about grapefruit and sweet lemons. Drenched in honey, it seems. Some baker’s spices and even some salt and tannins, making it dry towards the end. Very balanced, this one.

    In the finish – which is very long – it turns utterly dry, but it is not disturbing at all.

    Glen Keith from the 1990s seldom disappoints, but this is very good indeed. Around 200 EUR, which is not cheap though.
