GLEN KEITH 12 ans 1999
Single Malt, Scotland / Speyside, 70cl, Ref: 16382
- Appearance : Or pâle à reflets verts.
- Nose : Ample, fin. Printanier avec ses notes de menthe, d'anis et de lichen, il évolue sur la réglisse, le citron et le melon jaune. Dans une ambiance salée et épicée, la poire et la pomme verte entretiennent cette très agréable sensation de fraîcheur.
- Palate : Vive, limpide. Egalant en fraîcheur le nez, elle débute par une séquence sucrée (miel d'acacia, confiture de rose) et exotique (banane).
- Overall : Longue, tendre. Des fruits mûrs (poire, pomme) lui procurent beaucoup de suavité.
- 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.
Founded in 2005 by Thierry Richard and Laurent Buob, this small retailer offers a selection of whiskies, champagnes and cognacs. Focused on drawing attention to small producers and unusual products, the different bottlings in the collection are never anything short of interesting. Whether it’s recently disgorged champagne, Grande Champagne cognac bottled without added colouring, or single grain whisky from a closed distillery, the informed amateur in search of rare and exceptional spirits will always find something to please them.
Through the Closed Distilleries range, the smaller French bottler, La Part des Anges (‘The Angel’s Share’) endeavours to bring new life to grain and malt distilleries that have ceased to operate. Forming a collection of some of the rarest bottlings, all of these various single malts and single grains - both Scottish and Japanese - proudly display a year and are mostly bottled unchillfiltered at cask strength.
