I Do Love Sweet and Powerful Malts
I have this bottle quite a long time. It is a 19 year-old Glen Keith by Exclusive Malts. It is not technically a cask strength malt since it’s alcohol content is only 50.8% abv but it still packs a punch. You can smell the alcohol on the nose along with a very sweet caramel. Although, it looks much darker in the bottle, in the glass, it a reflective bright gold. The mouthfeel is heavy. Sugar cane, sweet fruit, and sherry dominate – lovely. Its finish is long and spicy. What’s not to like about that.
The Glen Keith Distillery was founded in the 1950s, mothballed, and then reopened. I have not seen a bottle of Glen Keith anywhere for ages. It is truly a shame.
