Whisky reviews for Glenrothes 1968 DT

2 users have left 2 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 89.38 points.

  1. barryfox915 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Colour: Old gold.
    Nose: Very nice oaky and fruity flavours, mellow, slightly
    smoky, and on ripped fruits (peach, apricot and pear).
    Taste: Malty, fruity,
    oaky, on berries, peach, apricot, cigar smoke and fudge. Diluted, it becomes
    chewy, slightly bitter and soapy. The finish is short to medium, malty, oaky,
    mellow, fruity, and on banana. Diluted, it becomes more on menthol (tooth
    paste).
    General Impression: A very good and venerable Glenrothes. Stands its
    age very well.
