Whisky Reviews for Glenrothes 27-year-old ElD
12 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.41 points
- Orange, yellow fruits, vanilla, honey, toffee, very fruity, very nice
- 22-22.5-22.5-22, pleasantly surprised
- An average of almost 89 points? Really? On the nose I thought it was alright, the taste wasn't bad either but that finish... That ruined everything for me. I truly wish I could be more positive.
- Fruity nose very pleasant.
In the mouth it goes down a notch, the balance is not present.
We feel the influence of the Bourbon cask but the whole remains rough.
Very classy on vanilla, honey and noble wood. There is wax, fruit (melon, orange ...) and a sharp tip.
It's lively, not superbly balanced. There is sweet candy, apple, spices and a citric tip.
Medium, minty, spicy, vegetal with orange peel.

- Nose already promising and on the palate really a fruit bomb, can compete with the recent speysiders from 1973
Exotic fruits, green fruits, mango, passion fruit, leafy and a bit grassy, honeydew - interesting and not bad
Oily, creamy, waxy, very fruity and sweet, more exotic and tropical fruits, bananas, pineapples, hints of vanilla, creme brulee, some citrus notes, cooked oranges - really good
Medium long, warm, more fruits, still sweet, good acidity, really fine notes of oak wood
- Many bottles have already been opened at Whisky Show London. also many bottles have gone away as sampels. If you can still find it, the buyer is lucky.
- Nose: sweet and some sour fruitiness, plums, pears, sweet orange and honey. Sweet lime, eucalyptus very very fresh and fruity and sweet.
Taste; waxy notes, oranges, ginger, raisins, dried fruit, honey, fresh oak, roasted sweet nuts, vanilla and a bit smokey.
A complex palet, fresh and fruity but a great body for this kind of drams.
long end nice finish.
This really isthe Art of Whisky Ageing.
