Whisky Reviews for Glenrothes 11-year-old GM

11 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.45 points

  1. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    The typical caramel, fudge and musty notes of Glenrothes on the nose. In addition, slightly rotten red grapes. On the nose it is sweeter, grainier and more accessible, but also more boring.
    I actually like Glenrothes, but it doesn't knock me out.

    The nose and the first impression is like a classic older Glenrothes original bottling, but then there are unusual herbal notes and clear bitterness that are not known from the original bottlings. Overall, nevertheless, a nice Sherry-Glenrothes with a lot of sweetness, but which should have more classic sherry notes and complexity.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Peach, dried fruits, nice sweetness, raisins
    • Taste
      85 85
      Strong taste and sweetness, a bit herbal and bitter
    • Finish
      84 84
      Getting dry, the sherry sweetness continues to sound, relatively long

    Drinks very easy, a bit too easy if you ask me.

  6. dram-drinker scored this whisky 82 points Moderator

    Awful on the nose for me as I really don't like this kind of butterscotch but afterwards actually pretty easy drinkable

    I had already a full bottle of this one before but was lucky to get rid of it soon and now bumped into that one again in a blind tasting - my rating was even lower - tough luck.
    • Nose
      80 80
      Plenty of butterscotch, vanilla, toffee, salty caramel - sorry, not my preference
    • Taste
      84 84
      Light, fresh, fruity, little sweetness, apple, pear, citrusy, more vanilla, hints of leather resp. sligthly sulphury
    • Finish
      82 82
      Medium long, warm, going into grapefruits, hints of bitter almonds

    All in all a very fruity and tasty malt which is well suited for the warmer season as it is also somewhat refreshing. I can recommend it with a clear conscience.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Sherry immediately gets in your nose, followed by dark fruits (blackberry?) And a hint of cinnamon. Quite refreshing on the whole with little alcohol.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Here, too, the mouth is filled with a concentrated sherry charge that brings dark fruit with it. Here the blackberry comes across quite clearly and is complemented by dark grapes, followed by sweet toffee and milk chocolate. The cinnamon has completely disappeared, but is replaced here by a hint of damp oak. Alcohol is perceived very softly.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Creamy, medium-long finish that leaves a fine mouthfeel with oak, milk chocolate and a hint of cinnamon. Here the alcohol can be perceived somewhat "sharper".

  8. ffmdino did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    no sorry, here a somewhat strange sherry note and sulfur just kills everything
    there is a better way to get started to discover Glenrothes
    • Nose
      flat / simple, sulfur, sherry, light vanilla, cinnamon?
    • Taste
      soft and round on the palate
      Sherry, sulfur, oak becomes stronger, dark caramel, becomes tart
    • Finish
      medium long
      tart, bitter, sulfur, light milk chocolate, light cherries
