That must have been a very special cask where this Glen Keith has been in for 24 years! This bourbon barrel must have been so active, that the whisky looks like having been matured in a first fill sherry cask. And it's a bit of a mystery how there must have been quite some angel's share, with only 131 bottles left in the end, while at the other hand the ABV is still almost 60% after so many years. Does anyone have an explanation?

About the whisky I can say that you really smell and taste the wood, but that it's not overpowering the original fruitiness of this Speyside whisky. The wood and the fruit form a balanced combination. This dram has a very pleasant taste of its own.

Sur les premières éffluves, l’alcool est là (trop!), il lui faut quelques minutes avant de laisser place à un “vrai nez”. Un nez aux premiers abords très classique avec des fruits éxotiques, quelques notes florales et ce petit quelque chose de bourbonesque. On laisse réposer encore un peu et la tout se complique. Je ne sais pas si c’est moi mais j’ai des relents fromagers (roquefort ?) et même une très légère fumée.

Taste

Rohh, le côté fromager est toujours présent avant de laisser place aux épices tel le clou de girofle . La bouche devient ample et crémeuse avec le temps sur les fruits cuits. La fumée que je pensais percevoir n’est plus là ... etait c eun mirage ?

Finish

Longue sur les fruits cuits, l’amertume, la crème et le poivre.

Comments

Une belle originalité dans son ensemble. Un dram de bonne facture qui demandera du temps pour être apprécié à sa juste valeur. Je suis certains qu’a hauteur de col et après quelques jours il s’enrichira de nouvelles notes. (nouvelle review dans quelques semaines)

First impression certainly matches the color. As in, the bourbon influence is very evident. Lots of oranges, pine needles, wood shavings. There's some sour lemon and gentle notes of vanilla too, as well as a whiff of fennel.

Taste

We've got chocolate, tobacco and bitter oranges, as well as wood shavings, cracked black pepper and apricots. Pretty powerful stuff at nearly 60 percent abv!

Finish

Oranges and subtle chocolate. Medium to long.

Comments

A very bourbon-esque Glen Keith. The heavy cask influence overshadows some of the fruitiness that other expressions from this period display.

Bien fruité, mais l'alcool empêche les arômes de se libérer. Il faut s'armer de patience, mais cela vaut le coup ! Il se fait caressant et doux. Les fruits s'expriment dans une version sucrée évoquant un sirop. De la mangue.

Taste

Riche, opulent en bouche. Fruité. Vraiment très joli. L'alcool est parfaitement intégré.

Finish

Les fruits, encore !
