    [June, 2005]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 71,50 Euro in March, 2005.

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 90.  My notes state a nice fruity and sherry profile.

    Another great old style Glenrothes. I really like this one.
    • Nose
      Fresh, rich, fruity - lots of citrus fruits like oranges, lemons, but also green sugar bananas, honey, hints of vanilla and wood - Very good!
    • Taste
      Punchy, oily, creamy, fruity, more on cooked oranges, jam - subtle sweetness, the wood notes stay in the background - Great!
    • Finish
      Medium long, little zesty

    This is one of the citrusy style Glenrothes - oranges and lemons. Not so much oak wood, sherry and no old books - just fresh like a young-at-heart scotch.

    A very complex and luscious dram, with a nose of honey, vanilla, brown sugar, dried fruits, and orange peel. The taste is honey, toffee, oranges, a hint of peaches, white grapes, and marmalade. The finish is slightly tart with white grapes, a hint of spices, and a slight kiss of smoke. Outstanding!
