Whisky Reviews for Glenrothes 1997 SV

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.61 points

  1. aspa scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    nose
    Very strong and typical sherry nose. Soft, round, without alcohol. More tart and spicy than sweet. Rum raisins and plums. Lightly caramelized brown sugar. Pure cane sugar.
    I like it very much.

    taste
    Strong, a little more alcohol that warms and tingles the tongue. Tart, dry sherry, slightly bitter like red wine, also raisins and cane sugar. Something slightly dirty, some rubber or something?
    Spicy, some wood and leather, much less on the sweet side. Interesting to explore, beautiful complexity and complexity.

    Exit
    Light pepper is added and the whole esophagus is nicely warmed. An aroma remains in the mouth which is dominated by tart notes, slightly bitter, tannins, red wine, oak, plus leather and raisins.

    Conclusion
    A delicious sherry malt that is much more tart and spicy than sweet. I would like more of it, but was he right to try the first dram on the train on Friday evening?
    N-88, T-89, F-86, total 88 points.
