Whisky reviews for Glenrothes 1996 DR

3 users have left 3 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 86.88 points.

  1. BehindSpace scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    .. an average malt with a rock solid ex-BC Cask.

    Malty, vanilla, sweet, noticeable wood that is not too tart.

    Unfortunately I lack a certain fruitiness. Also the tropical, which I like so much, is completely missing.

    Buyable for the original €100, but not a must for me.

  2. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    pleasant old Borbon whisky, which I lack a little the viscosity, a little too hot, a bit too decent in the Aromengebung.
    • Nose
      Slightly stingy at the beginning, after a little rest in the glass are beautiful ex-Bourbon notes, vanilla, light oak, but also ripe bright fruits. Clean and no muff. As far as unspectacular, but delicious. Much more pleasant with water, the ripe fruit notes become clearer
    • Taste
      without water, too hot for me, too alcoholic, because it slips on the palate. With water no wonder of aromas, rather dry oak notes, a little citrus peel.
    • Finish
      beautiful oak, rather dry, slightly peppery, astringent, mint.
