- Nose : initially austere, then it opens to apricots, peach but also pineapple and exotic fruits. Beeswax and oak polish complete this quite complex nose.
- Palate : warm notes from apricots, with a bit more oak spices, vanilla and caramel. It becomes more spicy toward the end with nutmeg, clove and more fruits.
- Overall : long, fruity with grassy notes and a hint of drying oak.
- 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.
MerchantValinch & Mallet is a young Italian independent bottler of single cask bottled at natural cask strength without chill-filtration. It was created by two individuals, coming from different backgrounds, united by the common passion for whisky and the desire to transform it into a profession. Each cask of whisky being unique by nature, this characteristic is transferred to the bottles: each of them has a handmade metallic plaque, where the information of each specific cask has been engraved by a fine blacksmith, thus creating unique works of art.
