  1. glen efze scored this whisky 75 points Expert Senior

    An 11 year old Glenrothes bottled in 2019 by Mossburn Distillery. It is not a single cask, but a batch bottling with 46% vol. Hogsheads are specified as the barrel type, the color is white wine - let's see what aromas remain.

    • Nose
      A hogshead whisky that is 11 years old, but you don't notice its age. The hogsheads were drained and didn't release much flavor. A caramelized fruit note, which could be quite pleasant, quickly becomes a bitter taste. The alcohol also burns a bit.

    • Finish
      Some old marzipan in the aftertaste with a slight hint of hydrocyanic acid, wood and, above all, a metallic bitterness.

      The whisky is disappointing and wasn't able to take enough aromas out of the barrels. For me, the whisky is too young and poorly matured. There is a lack of fruity sweetness, vanilla flavors are weak, but the bitterness was not left in the cask. A younger Glenrothes from the MacPhail's Collection, which is also bourbon aged, has a lot more to offer. Disappointing.

    19-20-20-20, whitish-bitter

  5. alex..w..fan scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    19 19 21 20 79 - mousse nose slightly, the taste is a continuation of the nose, allspice and bay leaf, and bread, everything is as it should be, you can drink but the batch could be better, but such a herring is just ...

    21 19 20 19 79 in cool weather (the air conditioner works) behaves differently, but in general the overall assessment does not change, the aroma is good but the taste does not match .... you can drink but not need to.

  6. wisekyofcourse scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    A distillery like Macallan, Glenturret, Highland Park which belongs to the Edrington group, which bottled like at Balblair by date of bottling in vintage!
    nose:
    vanilla, sweet, on toffee, creamy, some orange fruits
    mouth:
    the whisky sweet, fruity as we imagine, more sugar, then salted as in a fish bag !, a long impression in the mouth
    final:
    the zest of the lemon meringue for the sugar, the mellow tangerine, malt, vanilla and a little woody, medium finish on the same markers.
