Glen Keith 1991 (Whisky-Doris)
Tasting notes by Ruben Luyten - Posted in Glen Keith
Another 10th Anniversary bottling by Whisky-Doris, the German online shop which started in 2003.
Glen Keith 21 yo 1991 (51,9%, Whisky-Doris 2012, bourbon hogshead, 264 btl.)
Nose: quite fruity: nectarine, melon, hints of mango. Faint bubblegummy notes, but they fade quickly. A little honey. There’s also a “green” side to it, with grassy notes, hay and mint. Vanilla. Nice and fresh. Mouth: similar story. Lots of apple, yellow plums, melon and honey. Sweet malty notes with vanilla. Then the spices gain territory, mostly ginger and cinnamon. A sudden boost of papaya in the end. Finish: medium long, slightly drier. Malt and soft oaky notes.
This Glen Keith unites young malty notes with a warm fruitiness in good Speyside tradition. I really enjoyed this one. Around € 85, sold here.
