Whisky Reviews for Glenrothes 1997 SV

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.44 points

  1. LeChiffre scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    For 21y maturation surprisingly little complex and a little watery in the mouth. Only the tingling spicy oak in the finish points to the old age. Overall delicious but at the price and for the age I would have expected more. That certain something is missing.
    • Nose
      82 82
      intense fruity sweetness; light (slightly fermented) fruits; Citrus notes; a little caramel
    • Taste
      83 83
      sweet and almost watery in the beginning; Citrus notes; slightly earthy note resonates; subtle spice of the oak comes up
    • Finish
      84 84
      tingling spicy oak notes emerge; subtle notes of pepper

  2. ffmdino did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    did not like it; it is too tart and the oak too dominant
    atypical for Glenrothes
    where are the 21 years
    where does this smoke note come from?
    • Nose
      light pear, fruity so mealy apple, rather bitter, not musty, earthy ?, a tasty note, slightly acidic, slightly gum, oak becomes more dirty,
      later light vanilla, light ham, apple comes even stronger
    • Taste
      full and soft on the palate
      bitter, oak becomes stronger, spicy, light coffee, dark chocolate, peppery, light smoke?
    • Finish
      medium long
      light oak becomes more bitter, spicy, espresso, tart becomes stronger, stringy
