I love older Glen Keith from the 1960ies and 70ies, especially out of Bourbon wood. These underrated babies are exceptionally expressive and hard to find. Let’s see what this 1976 edition has in store for us:
Glen Keith 22 y.o. James MacArthur 1976 Celebration of 500 years of Scotch Whisky 1494 – 1994, 51,2%
Nose: Vanilla cream, a freshness and tropical fruitiness (mostly on passion fruit and peaches) caress the nose. Wonderful white oak aromas, latte macchiato and chard plant can be found as well.
Palate/Finish: It tastes more herbal than expected; green tea, then sweet malt with honey, vanilla and tropical fruits on its back lead into a rewarding finish.
