Glen Keith 1991 21 YO Jack Wiebers Whisky World
Glen Keith 1991 21 YO Jack Wiebers Whisky World, 49,6 %
Well, this particular Glen Keith is 21 YO, distilled in 1991 and bottled in 2012 by Jack Wiebers Whisky World. It is part of the bottling series Ocean liner. There was a total of 239 bottles.
I have only tasted two Glen Keiths and I do not know a lot about the distillery. But I do know that it was mothballed in 1999 and reopened in June 2013. The owner is Chivas Brothers.
Nose (23/25): Lovely! A very rich, full and complex nose! Fruity and aromatic at first. Then sweetness in the form of vanilla and caramel sauce. I do not often recognize almond notes in whisky, but this time it really stood out on the nose.
Taste (22/25): The complexity of the nose disappears, but actually I do not mind. The mouthfeel is smooth and nice. The palate is filled with caramel and salt. Quite light, like a summer breeze.
Finish (21/25): The caramel and salt lingers in the end, and is joined by licorice and spices.
Balance (22/25): Altogether the caramel was very dominating on the palate and makes the taste and finish a bit too sweet. Overall a very nice whisky with an outstanding nose.
