  2. Issie did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    • Nose
      a bit musty, grasses / herbs, a little bit of menthol (as you will notice the higher alcohol content), grapes, some earth, baked apple with cinnamon, a few strawberries, a few pine needles, some lemon, some peach
    • Taste
      Honey, caramel, muesli, strawberries, redcurrants, grapefruit, pepper - gets really dry at the back

  3. Malzbrenner scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Oloroso-Sherry colorful and with beautiful "legs" the Glenrothes with its 48.8% Vol. Can expect a lot
    • Nose
      86 86
      On the nose a beautiful sherry note, sandalwood, chocolate and marzipan, vanilla, raisins, butter biscuits, black cherries
    • Taste
      85 85
      The alcohol is initially quite clear. The sharpness is then captured by a beautiful sweetness, cherry notes, sherry and spices, orange peel. Oily
    • Finish
      84 84
      First, dry sherry on the palate, then a light chillinote, spices. A slightly astringent tone on the palate that ends in spicy wood. Mid-length finish.

  4. The_Independent scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    This Glenrothes falls for me in the category "very nice". Since I have had much better bottlings in the glass.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Sweet, sugary, vanilla, caramel, sherry, maybe some popcorn.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Creamy, sweet, strong, beautiful spiciness, honey, sherry notes. Milk chocolate and latte macchiato over time. Much better than the nose.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Quite short and unspectacular. Sweet, creamy with light oak spice.
      Further tasting will add some bitterness, and the finish will be a bit longer - medium maybe.

    Blindtasting.

    The alcohol is well integrated for my feeling, no perceived false notes, decent keg - I like it!
    • Nose
      86 86
      intensively fruity-sweet, raisins, ripe figs, cranberry jam, a slight freshness is added, mild pepper, Black Forest cake
    • Taste
      85 85
      Crunchy fruits, red fruit compote, chili chocolate
    • Finish
      85 85
      at least medium-long, warming, astringent, oily, fruity

  7. dram-drinker scored this whisky 83 points Moderator

    Unfortunately my impression changed quite a bit after the second tasting
    • Nose
      84 84
      Lots of vanilla, cookies, cakes, dough, hints of buttercotch, sherry notes
    • Taste
      83 83
      Fruity, grapes, grapefruits, vanilla, spices, herbs
    • Finish
      82 82
      Medium long, warm, little leathery and flat in the end

  8. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Somehow it seems a bit clumsy for me, simple and with little depth.
    If it's a Glenrothes with sherry, then I'd rather resort to a UA bottling with age for a little more money.

  9. coldsun scored this whisky 62 points Expert Senior

    Deep sweet sherry, cakes, vanilla, mellow, green fruits, nutmeg. Taste echoes nose with buttery bold.

    Krass! about 67 € and NAS - what should you expect big? To make it short: MUCH!
    Certainly by far the best NAS whisky I've ever tried. Despite 48% vol. The alcohol is almost creamy soft integrated. No trace of youth - it looks more like a set older whisky> 18 years. Lots of vanilla, with already noticeable oak and a perfectly integrated sherry barrel influence. Everything rather in the dark direction with complexity, which brings only the age with the time. The typical Glenrothes earthiness comes from time to time to the fore.

    Very good price / performance ratio. You can buy it without hesitation and have a lot of fun with it. I know some whiskys> 18 years, which I would leave without problems on the shelf. Again, something learned: When NAS is done with brain and mind conscientious, it can also get really good stuff around.
    I remember the old Royal Lochnagar Selected Reserves. Unfortunately, it's not easy anymore and cheap to get. Rightly!
