    Incredibly mild and soft. Beautiful vanilla notes give a cozy warmth. Great old bourbon. I like it very much!

  2. Kalleholzbein scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    A little reserved in the nose, then he really gets going. Really good in the mouth and finish. Nice old bourbon, soft, mild and vanilla.

  3. thijs100 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Elegant almost to a fault. This Glenrothes from The Whisky Agency is full of little intricacies, has plenty of complexity and great balance.
    • Nose
      Very elegant. Floral and fruity with gentle malty notes and furniture polish. Fresh apples, pears and galia melon, but also soft notes of chalk and minerals. After a while notes of beeswax, conifer and honey appear, as well as gentle stone fruits.
    • Taste
      A level of maturity you don't see often anymore. Lots of fruitiness with peaches, clementines, stewed apples and ripe pears, as well as whispers of barley husks and beeswax in the background. Finally a sliver of white pepper, but also some menthol.
    • Finish
      Pretty long and somewhat dry with just a touch of oak shavings, straw and mild tobacco notes.
