    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 586 bottles from cask no 15355Glen Rothes Distillery stands in the village of Rothes on Speyside, and has nothing to do with the ghastly New Town of the same name. Proprietary bottlings are all done by Berry Bros. & Rudd, the London wine merchants, and most of the distillery’s output goes in their famous blend, Cutty Sark. The colour of polished rosewood, this bottling has been done from a first fill sherry butt. The aromatic profile is similar to the Linkwood (Cask 4816); ‘melted butter prior to making an omlette, strong Highland cheddar cheese, traces of linen’, but it adds a perfumed wine note, like Burgundy or Malmsey. Water brings up crème brulee (with a pear base), treacle toffee and scorched linen. The flavour is smooth and sweet, then dry and tannic; rounded with some dried fruit and burnt sugar. Great with black coffee and dark chocolate.
