  1. wbarchive_104650 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Nice Whisky, but totally overrated

  2. ovanpuyvelde did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    This bottling already seems to be “whisky of the year” in Germany with ratings going through the roof and shameless flippers already re-selling their bottles. As for me, I will wait patiently until some more neutral drinkers will try and rate it...

  3. LDB scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Very nice specimen of a well-matured Glenrothes! Affordable too.

  4. Whisky Hamster scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Initially very quaffable malt with typical sweeter Rothes profile. Second time slight sulphur notes detectable, don't bother me too much but they are there. Sensitives beware.

    • Nose
      Matches. Yellow apples, apricots, some vanilla. Light raisins. Lemonade. Sawdust. A hint of brass.
    • Taste
      Lemons, oranges, flamed pineapples. White chocolate. Effervescent powder. A hint of lavender and distant smoke.

    Farting Whisky which I like.

  9. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Good Glenrothes. The beautiful dirty notes from Rothes are there. If you like them, then you also like the malt. The sherry gods are not that dark and citrus fruits are also in the game.

    Good whisky, if you like Glenrothes. The partly well over 90 ratings, I can not understand.
