    Great price alcohol ratio ????smily. Paints more solidly that tolerates water

      Very closed without water. With water it offsets itself sweetly malty and nutty. Etqas grass and fine wood. Etqas lemon and apple. It is also slightly dirtier than in some mortlachs...some almond

    Wow! This is the most atypical Glenrothes I've ever drank, not just because it comes from a Bourbon Hogshead (instead of the usual sherry casks). The fresh, cooling start is still halfway normal, but the extremely powerful start in the taste and especially this gaudy, massive and extremely malty finish with notes of black bread. The very high alcohol strength certainly plays a role, but should not be the only reason.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Clean, somewhat cooling mentholic notes, pear, apple.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Extremely massive, red apples, red peppers, spicy / cardamom.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Long-lasting and strong, very malty like a stout.
