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

Although the independent bottler Signatory Vintage cannot claim to be one of the oldest in Scotland, it has managed to build up an extremely solid reputation amongst the great malt connoisseurs. The creator of the famous range The Prestonfield and many other well-known ranges, it is best known for its un-chillfiltered and cask strength bottlings that offer amateurs the chance to enjoy their whisky in its most natural form. It was also one of the first independent bottlers to acquire a distillery and now offers a growing number of expressions of one of the most artisan single malts available.

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.
