    It's pretty vivid - a bit less smooth and nice than the 70s Glenrothes but still better than the 90s Glenrothes
    • Nose
      Spicy, vanilla, peppery, butter cookies, some ripe fruits
    • Taste
      Punchy, peppery, oily, spicy, touch of wood, little vanilla, cookies, subtle sweetness, some fruitiness
    • Finish
      Medium long, peppery, spicy - actually pretty good

    You and everyone else. I have been looking for years. The closest i found was 1981 in Canada at CSNWINE.COM They had some left, however from the states I had to travel there to purchase as Canadian laws don`t ship spirits to USA consumers. Maybe UK they will. cheaper than purchasing the 72`RR but may not be as good. Hope it works out!
