This is a 19 year Glen Keith matured in an ex-bourbon hogshead and bottled at 56.1% ABV.
Nose: Briny malt up front with granny smith apples, butterscotch, old musty wooden furniture, and a bit of isopropyl lurking in the background.
Palate: Salty and tart up front with malt becoming a bit bolder. Almost a hint of smoke to the dry oak here with a slightly herbal profile.
Finish: Dried herbs and oak in a fairly short, dry finish.
Rating: 82/100 – I don’t have a ton of experience with Glen Keith, but this is a fairly average malt overall.
Value for the money: This retailed for $70 at Binny’s, and while that’s a pretty decent price for a cask strength 19 year, I wouldn’t personally be jumping to buy another bottle at that price given my thoughts on this one.
