Color

Nose

Vanilla, butter, honey, cookies, citrus fruits

Taste

Oily, creamy, vanilla, butterscotch, little woody notes, little fruity notes

Finish

Medium long, no news in the end

Comments

A more modern Glenrothes whereas I expected rather an old style Glenrothes. At least it is not that badly butterscotch as the 1995 or 1998

This one goes already pretty much into the butterscotch notes which seem very popular among the most recent Glenrothes. Actually it's not necessarily my preference.

It should have been great. The nose is, but the palate is way out of balance. The finish is very nice ... problem lies in the palate, it should have been smoother like the `80`s vintage bottles. Therefore only nice

The Glenrothes has bottled vintages from the 1970s, the 1980s and the 1990s. The earliest vintage bottling was the 1971, and the latest the 1998.
