    Quite a chewy dram - one to sit down with whilst doing the crossword.

      Some sharpness, slightly acidic, brut.
    • Taste
      Oily, citric, fairly thick.

      The alcohol is somewhat predominant imo and it could use some water so that the smell and taste come into their own after a few minutes. Light sulfur in the taste.

    At the time of writing down this review (which was a while ago), this was my first and only tasting of Glenrothes. Well, perhaps it still is.

    I was a bit hesitant as I'm generally not a big fan of malts filled at higher strength, but for this one the ABV was starting to tame down a bit. Frankly I'm not so certain as to what ABV this cask was filled at; and honestly the taste doesn't tell either, which is a good thing for me.

    The malt itself is quite dirty and dusty, and the refill sherry provides a good counterbalance on the palate. It doesn't get overly bitter and hot, which is often the case with the high filling strength malts (for me at least), but those notes are not completely absent either. I can enjoy this.
    • Nose
      Raisins, dusty & damp, some alcohol, petrol, cinnamon, tart berries, chocolate, some stonefruits
    • Taste
      Apples, treacle, dried berries, cherries, caramel, milk-like texture, some cedar
    • Finish
      Dark chocolate, cedar, raisins, moderately long, quite dry, hint of liquorice sticks, some white peppers, dark-roast coffee
