- Wow! So much chocolate! This whisky needs time and water! Nice dram after all !
- Although this Glenrothes was allowed to mature for 18 years in a refill sherry butt, he has in my opinion little added to fruit flavors, but increasingly musty and rotten wood flavors. This combination is actually not that bad, whereby I miss a little the "sherry flavors", but the wood elements fit perfectly to the subtle fruit impact. Like and tastes.
Bright caramel with a reddish glow shines in the glass, on the glass wall of my Premium Snifter sticks a variety of long and oily "legs". Slightly musty and moldy cherries and spicy wood tones rise from the glass, dried caramel cubes fall on milk chocolate, creamy toffee is permeated by a fresh mint note. The decayed and wet wood elements dominate the nose, here and there sweetness and dark fruit flash through. Chocolate, caramel, a handful of nuts and berries preserved in rum are a great contrast to the wooden elements.
Sour cherries and nuts dominate the first impression. Relatively quickly, the taste changes and peppery pungency with a wooden impact tickle on the tongue. Sweet and creamy, the second sip flows over the tongue, which intensifies the following sharpness and this time neatly heats the tongue. Pleasant warmth flows through the palate, the salivation is stimulated. Woody pungency still sticks between the tongue and the palate with a pinch of pepper, slowly dry and decayed wood tones come into their own. Dark chocolate sticks to the palate, again show sour cherries and caramel.
Warming blends the taste and aftertaste, the sharpness slowly fades and leaves the most different wood tones on the tongue. The sometimes harsh aromas sound relatively quick and leave a creamy and wooden film on the tongue.
- The nose is potent but I also smell matches so not a particularly good start.
Its smells like really sweet red wine mixed with a little tobacco smoke.
On the palate it is very sweet and the sulphur is not to bad and there is a nice spice note unfortunately it is one dimensional and I don`t find this very interesting.
Perfectly acceptable, nothing wrong with it, just lacks a little sparkle
Sweet, sticky caramel lumps, chewy molasses, musty barrel, dried fruit; slight acidity of wine. Reminds me of Werther's original.
Creamy, full; nice barrel (great spice, takes up a lot of speed) light fruits, still sweet, barrel gets stronger, tobacco-nut mixture, still dried fruits Dark chocolate loaded with cocoa
Nut, tobacco, nut again, really nice, strong flavor, which builds up completely and stays long. Really dark chocolate is available
Strawberries, peach, earth, cherry, honey, cereals, some lemon, this strange-dusty is also back, apple
Honey, peach, strawberries, grasses, lemon, wood, pepper
- Delicious and characteristic Glenrothes with pleasant refill Sherrybuttaromen. He who is very sensitive will reject the least sulfur; I find it quite interesting here.
Earthy, slightly musty-fruity Glenrothes aromas, sweet-and-sourged pipe tobacco, removes red fruits, strawberries if necessary, then slightly mineral notes.
Dates, caramel, chocolate, strawberries, though of more restrained intensity, minimal wood tones and in the transition to the finish a soft hint of sulfur can be identified. Mellower and clearer in the aromas with water.
Sweet fruit aromas and caramel notes mix with a pleasant oak bitterness. Medium. Subtle sulfur is noticeable after several sips.
Forest berries and overripe banana, some caramel, behind it the oak and form of wet, mature wood and spices. Slight hint of sulfur and damp leather.
The forest fruits and the caramel are back, quickly replaced by strong oak with tingling spice and a mixture of dark and milk chocolate. One thinks to feel a hint of smoke.
Finish Medium length embossed with oak and chocolate. Something bitter.
Sherry, nutty, spices, cloves, vanilla, hints of butterscotch
Oily, creamy, sirupy, milk chocolate, sherry wood, subtle sweetness - not bad
Medium long, warm, more spices
- Mature, balanced whisky. Beautiful sherry cask maturation without being superimposed. Pleasantly sweet. Dry on the finish,
