Glen Keith 1992 (Whisky-Fässle)

Posted by: Ruben Luyten In: Glen Keith

Glen Keith will reopen in 2013. That should be good news. The 1970 expressions released in 2010/2011 were great, but even the younger ones are pretty enjoyable.

Nose: as most of these young Glen Keiths, it’s fairly malty with a nice, fresh fruitiness. Nectarine, gooseberry and orange. Barley sugar, a little honey. Buttercups and hay. Some vanilla as well. Mouth: fruity (orange, pineapple sweets, yellow plums) with a pleasant sweet & sour balance. Again some vanilla. Then some grassier notes and a little ginger, leading to a soft bitterness. Hints of liquorice and light oak. Finish: medium long, again mostly on green fruits and light spices.

This one is easy to like, even though I find it quite simple. It’s crisp and fruity, a good example of a modern, medium aged bourbon expression. Around € 90.

Score: 88/100
