Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : jaune doré soutenu.
  • Nose : riche, concentré. A profusion, on trouve tout d’abord des fruits exotiques (ananas, kaki), des agrumes (orange, mandarine), de la cire d’abeille et des fleurs (pivoine). De nombreuses épices viennent ensuite lui procurer beaucoup d’allonge et d’équilibre (cannelle, cardamome, curry). De plus en plus élégant et pulpeux, il se révèle également chocolaté et crémeux.
  • Palate : pleine de vivacité, elle s’ouvre avec fougue sur des notes de frangipane, de praline et de noix muscade. Au fur et à mesure, sa dimension exotique (passion, goyave) prend le dessus. Elle évolue lentement vers un registre plus acidulé dominé par le citron sous toutes ses couleurs. Son acidité est à peine tempérée par une fine couche de vanille-bourbon.
  • Overall : ferme, musclée. Des notes médicinales (baume, benjoin) agissent dans un premier temps comme un onguent et viennent tapisser le palais. L’accalmie est cependant de courte durée, car des épices (poivre noir, muscade, girofle) lui procurent un souffle nouveau. La rétro olfaction est particulièrement fruitée et pulpeuse, le verre vide est quant à lui épicé et pimenté.
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.
