Glen Keith 10 Year Old (Pre 1983 Bottling)
This dram was tasted as part of the 12 Drams of Xmas series
Day 6's rare dram came from Andrew Purslow (@ardbaggie) and this was the first dram to really stump almost everyone with very little scores being allocated from this dram.
This Glen Keith 10 Year Old was bottled before 1983 and is only now available from auction or if you're very lucky from one of the specialist retailers who has managed to pick up a bottle.
I was literally miles away with this one as i went for the Irish Redbreast 12 year old from the Midleton distillery, certainly a far stretch to what it actually was.
light and fresh initial nose, a touch floral maybe even grain like in nature has that dewy note in there
quite malty but very smooth, malty, honey, and a little floral
has quite a nice warming honied finish
