    The Glenrothes 1987 bott05, db (83) n20 t21 f21 b21. Enticing marmalade on toast, but never quite hits the heights expected. 43%

    What I like about this is the citrus and spicy notes that come over on

    the palate. The flavor on the finish is nice as well, lots of vanilla

    and some cinnamon. It is refreshing and well balanced throughout the

    dram, just remarkable and continues to get better through to the end.

  6. Feusi scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    A 18yo GlenRothes, i expected more character. Too little character in the palate with hot spices, oak an d dried fruits. In a medium finish with spices, herbs and wood, but a bit flat. Is perhaps as well as a digestif after a meal?

    Shows it's youth, but rather enjoyable.
    • Nose
      Fruity and sweet.  Wedding cake.  Confectioners sugar.  Parma violets.
    • Taste
      Werther's original toffee.  Creme caramel.  Oaky.  Peaches and cream.
    • Finish
      Medium and dry.  Oak and marmalade.  Mixed ground pepper.
