Glen Keith Carn Mor Cask Strength 1988
Glen Keith Carn Mor Cask Strength 1988 has a nose that is very full and intense and shows some tropical fuits notes together with curry spices (chilli and cummin). On the palate the long ageing the in bourbon barrel has given rich vanilla flavours matched to citrus fruits and honey on toast. The finsh has more sweet citrus fruits, coffee and spice notes.
An independent bottling by Morrison and Mackay of Glen Keith single malt distilled on 4th October 1988 and matured in a bourbon barrel before being bottled as part of their Carn Mor Celebration of the Cask range on 24th August 2017. 221 bottles were produced.
The Glen Keith distillery was built in 1957-1960 on the site of a corn mill by Chivas Brothers, who also owned the nearby Strathisla distillery. It was one of the first new malt distilleries to be built in Scotland since the late-Victorian whisky boom. Glen Keith (a.k.a. Glenkeith) originally had 3 stills because the distillery was designed for triple distillation.
When Chivas opened Glen Keith distillery in 1959, its output was destined for blending purposes
The number of stills was increased to five in 1970, when they switched to double distillation. The new stills were a novelty; they were the first gas-fired stills in Scotland. The Glen Keith distillery was mothballed in 1999 and sold to Pernod Ricard in 2001. Sadly, the new owners didn’t maintain the original distillery equipment in the decade that followed.
After being mothballed in 1999, the Glen Keith distillery was ‘officially’ reopened in on June 14, 2013 – although some say that
malt whisky production had actually started again a little earlier in April. Compared to the ‘old’ Glen Keith distillery, the production capacity has almost doubled to 6,000,000 litres of pure alcohol per year.
