Glen Keith Distillery Edition

An official bottling of Glen Keith – the only one in recent years, I believe, unless you count the Chivas Brothers bottlings as officials. As you know the was mothballed in 1999 until they reopened in 2013.

It’s called Glen Keith Distillery Edition which is a very nondescript name for a bottling that’s widely available outside of the distillery. Much like the mention ‘distilled by master craftsmen’.

: very accessible, but very attractive as well. A mix of vanilla cake with sweet orchard fruits (apricots, juicy pears, grapes) and light tropical touches (bananas, vitamin juice). Honeyed corn flakes. A hint of Belgian Tripel as well (specifically Karmeliet). Mouth: more middle-of-the-road now. Plenty of malty notes, vanilla custard, nectarines and hints of bourbon wood (faintly plankish, almost perfumed). Grassy notes, ginger and a bit of chocolate in the end. : quite short with oak spice and a grainy .

The nose was a pleasant surprise but on the palate it went back to a harmless profile. Honest and reasonably fruity, I could certainly recommend this to drinkers looking to move upwards, or as a daily dram. Around € 30 from TWE and Master of Malt, currently further discounted over at Green Welly Stop.

Score: 81/100
