    So much sulfur in this one. Not even close to the quality of the 1995. A disappointment.

    Nose: Very spicy and creamy with oodles of sweet vanilla, gingernut biscuits, golden syrup, hints of citrus and malt.

    Palate: A creamy, malt-driven palate with sweet winter spices, particularly cinnamon. Rhubarb crumble with hot custard and hints of black pepper.

    Finish: Good length with more vanilla and a suggestion of nutmeg on the tail.

    These vintage releases of Glenrothes make for excellent every day Seyside dramming whiskies. Soft, malty and highly drinkable with a good level of fruit, cereal and nutty chocolate qualities.

    Not worse than 1994...
    • Nose
      Citrus with rich vanilla dominate, lemons and limes mix with more exotic fruits. There is a cinnamon note too.
    • Taste
      The citrus and fruit notes are still to the fore. There is a little distant smoke and some roasted banana.
    • Finish
      Smooth, long, rich vanilla.

  10. granella2003 scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Yellow flowers (dandelions and buttercups), light honey.
      Continues with notes of Sauternes wine (quite ripe apricot)
      and lots of butterscotch, vanilla and cappuccino and ultimately just a bit smoky.
    • Taste
      In the mouth it starts a bit shy but not for long.
      Quite some honey and jam, ripe apples, toast, lemon marmalade then cinnamon and nutmeg from the wood
    • Finish
      Medium finish with rich vanilla notes.
