Glen Keith 1993 (TWE exclusive)

Tasting notes - Posted in Glen Keith

What a year it has been in 2019 for The Whisky Exchange, presenting a seemingly endless stream of high-quality bottlings to celebrate their 20th anniversary. Next up: a Glen Keith 1993. Whisky from this distillery really shines above 20 years of age, often showing a brilliantly fruity profile.

 

 

Glen Keith 1993 - Signatory for The Whisky ExchangeGlen Keith 26 yo 1993 (56,6%, Signatory Vintage for The Whisky Exchange ’20th Anniversary’ 2019, hogshead #82779, 217 btl.)

Nose: lovely fruitiness. Unripe pineapple, lemon meringue, green apple and banana. Great balance between creamy notes and zesty elements. Hints of icing on vanilla cake, as well as fresh mint and subtle wax. Mouth: punchy, citrussy and slightly grassy. Bright orchard fruits again (juicy pear), grapefruit, hints of white pepper and cinnamon. Sauvignon whisky. Subtle maracuja. Touches of mint and aniseed. Finish: quite long, minty, with green fruits and classic bourbon oak.

When it comes to bright, fruity and slowly matured Speyside whisky Glen Keith should be on your list. Exclusively available from The Whisky Exchange.

Score: 88/100
