  1. Gaija scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    [Quick festival note] I wanted a retry two years later just to see if I was more receptive on the nose. And sadly, while the rest of the profile is still very good, the nose is still a bit too shy for me (but again, granted, this is in festival conditions). I'm downgrading it from 90 to 89 but this is still a very good dram and very good value for money.
    • Nose
      88 88
      As I remembered, this is a bit shy. Still, if you're patient and paying attention, there are nice notes of lemon meringue pie, white flowers, espcially lily of the valley, and something very feminine.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Very very good, as I remembered, with aromatic herbs and a lot of lime, something very classy and feminine, coriander, citrus allsorts, white flowers, elderberries, white chocolate.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Extremely long and flavourful as I remembered, with lemon balm and other acidic vegetal touches, superb.

  10. Koning scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Blind tasting: Good development in this dram. A different profile than the Glen Keith in the same session (wb: 71820); it's gentler and more spicy at the same time; the sweet and sour notes are less dominant in comparison.
    • Nose
      87 87
      A mild and refined nose: mango peels and lemons develop into sweeter notes with caramel and peppermint. It's a bit vegetal, maybe grassy too.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Creamy caramel and vanille, with some lemons. Turns spicier: chili pepper and curry. Has a grassy and slightly salty/mineral edge.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Apples, citrus fruits, vanilla and oak spices (ginger, white pepper). A whiff of smoke.

  11. JoachimV scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Fresh fruity and grassy. Pineapple, oranges and kiwi.
    • Taste
      Lots of fruits: Lychee, lemon, oranges, and kiwi.
    • Finish
      Fruity finish, medium long.

  12. Cask1988 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Part of Thuisfestival 7. Also part of a H2H with #71820
    • Nose
      Full, mature and with ripe fruits. Quite some spices and herbs as well. Full nose which makes quite an entry.
    • Taste
      A rather raw mouthfeel, rather sharp as well. With water this one improves a lot. It makes things more accessible and complex.
    • Finish
      Medium length finish offering ripe fruits, spices a wee bit of pepper, sawdust, flour and a tad tart but not to disturbing.

  13. HammerHead scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      89 89
      Very sweet and fruity, fragrant, honey, vanilla cake, vanilla butter, canned peach, pineapple syrup, sweet lemon, an eastern spiciness (cardamom), allspice, butterscotch.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Creamy, honey, fruitcake, peach, pineapple, bitter orange, lemon drop candy, green tea, wood spices like nutmeg, white pepper and slight clove.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Short to medium length: vanilla and honey, syrupy peach and pineapple, green tea, nicely drying on dusty wood spices.

      Needs some time in the glass to develop. Ripe yellow fruits, lemon cake, sage, spicy dark chocolate, green tea, light tropical fruits and some oak.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Gooseberries, yellow fruits, limes, various herbs, nutmeg, apples, chocolates - absolutely delicious.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Slightly astringent, still clearly fruity and only slowly becoming drier, delicate oak with espresso, tea again, fresh.

  29. Dre73 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Very fresh, fruity, balanced, nice full taste without being too strong. The finish is very ling and tasteful, making it even is the best part of this already very beautiful and pleasant whisky.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Very fresh, vanilla, yellow fruit, citrus, pretty full nose although quite subtle as well. 'Dreft', and very floral, some fresh mown grass. Very pleasant.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Smooth, sweet, fruity, then some tingling feeling on the tongue. Floral, light and fresh fruit, vanilla, oranges, some lychee.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Still pretty full and strong, sweet and fruity. Citrus, lemon, vanilla, very long finish. Some wood influence now. Later on a lot of peach and apricot comes in.

  34. Gaija scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    The fact that it doesn't have this bugging salty-spicy side that some fatter GK (from 92 e.g.) have, nor this overly sweet (pastry icing) side on the finale, lifts it to a light 90. Refreshing, delicate, archetypal feminine Glen Keith.
    • Nose
      (Festival note) Discrete at first, needs time to unfold. Some light wood varnish gives place to green apples and Calissons d'Aix, between other things I couldn't then describe, but I'm sure it would have been much clearer with some more time at home. The whole is very subtle and refined.
    • Taste
      Sublime refinement really, there's no questions to be asked once this crosses your lips. Flowers of all kind, rosewater, old style grandma soap, elderberries, pomelo, lychee ... yep, now we're talking.
    • Finish
      Incredible notes of lemon balm and lime in the end, makes it deliciously acidic and refreshing.

  35. Bishlouk scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Right in the profile I'm looking for at Glen Keith: finesse, freshness, fruity, floral, and without bitterness. And also very easily drinkable, no difficulty in approaching this dram. Pure pleasure.
    • Nose
      Light, fruity, and floral. Immediately attractive (according to my personal taste). The vegetal freshness develops, accompanied by ripe white white fruits.
    • Taste
      Juicy white fruit finesse mixed with floral notes. A very slight apple acidity. Green rhubarb at times.
    • Finish
      Average. The plant is here drier and more present, while the fruit is more discreet. A small pinch of sweet spices on the end.
