Glen Keith 1991 (Whisky-Doris)

Tasting notes by Ruben Luyten - Posted in Glen Keith

Glen Keith 1991 Whisky-DorisAnother 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.

Score: 88/100

  • Taco: I'm about finished with a bottle of this and am still amazed at how good it is. It's much more subtle than the popular sherry finished whiskers, but
  • Tony: I guess they are not planning on selling much to the likes of us. "Premiumisation" gone mad...
  • Johan Andersson: I'm in Campbeltown right now for the Springbank Open Day on Thursday. This review is really spot on. I really love Longrow and especially the 18 it be
