New GLEN KEITH 1992 Over 20 Years 6th Edition

GLEN KEITH 1992 Over 20 Years 6th Edition 52,7%

Single Malt, Scotland / Speyside 70cl Ref: 52138

Taking the name of the town in which it is located, the Glen Keith distillery was founded in 1958 in order to produce a triple-distilled single malt. This method was abandoned in 1970, the same year in which the number of stills increased from three to five, increasing again to six in 1983. After closing its doors in 1999, it was fully renovated and began distilling again on 14 June 2013. This sappy and intensely fruity, malty version is a brilliant example of the powerful, mineral and unctuous style of this single malt, which enjoys a superb reputation among enthusiasts looking for authentic single malts.

Profile: complex, the initial nose is heady (carnations, lily of the valley). It then takes on notes of vanilla, noble wood and fruit (Williams pear). The palate is mineral, fruity (white peach) and lemony. The finish is milky, tertiary (Armenian paper) and chocolatey.

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : vibrant gold.
  • Nose : full-bodied, complex. The initial nose is encircled in the fragrances of heady and white florals (carnation, lily of the valley). Within the aromatic palette lie aromas of vanilla pods, acacia honey and aromatic plants (chervil, sage). It then gradually develops into noble wood and fruity aromas (William’s pear, Golden Delicious apples).
  • Palate : simultaneously firm and creamy. The very mineral attack (chalk, schist) also bursts with ripe fruit flavours (Mirabelle plum, white peach, grapefruit). With notes of pressed citrus fruit (lemon, grapefruit), the mid-palate causes the taste buds to tighten slightly. Then, with incredible length, it becomes more praline, mentholated and empyreumatic (eucalyptus). With time, spices (coriander, clove) gradually appear.
  • Overall : long, voluptuous. With huge freshness, the finish becomes milky (almond, coconut) with an almost vanilla aspect. Full of tertiary aromas (Russian Leather, Papier d’Arménie), the end of the palate moves from vanilla into dark chocolate. The retro-nasal olfaction evokes a delicious juniper-berry flavoured hot chocolate. The empty glass returns to notes of green, malted barley.
The brand

The brand

Glen Keith was one of the rare distilleries to be built in the 20th century. It was built by the Chivas Brothers in 1957 on the site of a former mill. In 1960, three stills were installed, with two more being added in 1970 and a sixth in 1983. When it first began, Glen Keith produced a triple-distilled malt - a relatively rare practice for a Highland malt. But in the 1970s, it adopted the more conventional method of double distillation. Glen Keith is also commercialised under two other names, Glenisla and Craigduff, from independent bottlers Signatory Vintage and Gordon & MacPhail.

Merchant

Artist, Lands of Scotland, Malt Pedigree, Tartan, The Ten, Very Cloudy... all of these whisky ranges – composed of single malts and single grains – have one thing in common: they were all created by the team at La Maison du Whisky. They are the fruits of many decades of close collaboration with some of the most prestigious bottlers in Scotland. For some years the French importer and exclusive distributor of the classic ranges of well-known spirits producers, La Maison du Whisky was soon granted the very rare privilege of being able to complement these ranges with their own, bringing together two sets of expertise, two reputations and two complementary histories under one, single label.

The line

Baptised ‘Artist’, this new range makes no bones about proclaiming its identity. Cosmopolitan and contemporary, it draws its inspiration from the style that gave the Italian bottlings of the 60s and 70s their cult following. From the choice of whiskies (distillery, ageing process, age, strength, bottling procedure) to the design of the bottle and choice of label, every detail has been carefully considered. This range offers a fine presentation of both the whiskies and the artist whose works have been selected for the back labels.
