  1. robbert88 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    A young and playful whisky that is close to the base of a Glenrothes.
    • Nose
      Glenrothes milano
      Dr. N: The nose opens with an incredibly creamy scent of a young whisky. A floral women's perfume. And the smell of yogurt with pear, lychee and lemon, and lucky charms cereals.
    • Taste
      P: briefly a spring feeling in the mouth with the flavors of heather flowers. White pepper. The young creaminess from the nose is also reflected in the palette. Also lychees.
    • Finish
      F: citrus, a slight bitterness, quite dry mouthfeel. Short to medium long.

      A drop of water brings some cocoa into the aftertaste.

    Nose: Lemon cake intertwined with a veil of vanilla and an elegant floral bouquet composed of roses, marigolds and wild flowers. There is also a delicate fruity side, in the declination of ripe pear and cooked apple. Finally, a very hinted mineral scent. With water, the fruity side emerges more, also enriched with a good mandarin.

    Palate: Spicy notes of white pepper and cardamom, as well as lively ginger, which evolve on a substrate of butter, or rather butter biscuits, vanilla present in a discreet way and, as a final note, almond sugared almonds. With water, the spicy trait is milder and the whole looks more elegant and integrated overall.

    Final: Long, rather spicy with white pepper, vanilla, ginger but also sweet notes of vanilla and butter.
