hs305 gave this whisky 93 points

[January, 2007]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 115 Euro in November, 2005.

[July, 2014]  Together with friends I emptied another bottle that I bought for 115 Euro in November, 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 92,5 both times.  My notes state a close to perfection old style sherry profile.  Simply delicious and dangerously quaffable...

There is no accounting for taste...

Nose

Toffee, sherry, dried fruits, tropical fruits, ripe bananas, some meat and ham, toasted bread - very good!

Taste

Nice sweetness like chocolate, toffee, with some fruity notes from citrus fruits, oranges, but also some dried fruits form raisins, figs - really nice!

Finish

Long, warm and very smooth, actually the citrus fruits come out most in the end which makes a very fruity end

Comments

This one really has not just got the very fine and smooth sherry body but also a great surrounding fruitiness. Fantastic!

Color
Gin clear
Nose

Un nez intense, sans être agressif ni lourdeau pour autant. Un très fin chocolat au lait qui vient souligner des raisins bien mûrs. Une touche de bois fumé.

Puis le fruité se développe, de l'ananas, évocation de citron, de magnifiques agrumes se dessinent ensuite, mandarines. Cà donne très très envie d'y tremper les lèvres.
Taste

D'une superbe délicatesse, avec toujours ces fruits. Du sucre glace et une montée de marqueurs sherry en seconde partie de bouche, notamment noix.

Finish

Un poil court, mais c'est divin.

Comments

Très beau whisky, au fruité très classe, en duo avec le chocolat/noix. Il se boit tout seul.

Mandarine impériale, chocolat, fruits exotiques. Bouche puissante, cacaotée, assez fruitée. Manque de complexité mais très plaisant. Finale brève.

About 4-5 years ago the taxfree shop at Copenhagen Airport had this bottling on the shelves for quite a while. I walked by them several times, and finally I ended up buying two of them for 175 $.  I do not regret this today. happy

Just picked this beauty up. The owner wanted 399$ + Tax at 7.75%, so I offered him 400$US all in! He said no because it was very hard to get and no longer available. So I played possum and said okay, suit yourself, I will put it back. 3 minutes go buy as I am looking around at other items, and sure enough he says hell take it! So the lesson; buyers with cash are in control. It saved me about 40$US which was just enough for some fuel and a nice lunch! Everyone wins

Remember it\'s maturity that makes whisky great! That\'s why I Love The Glenrothes! Signature Picture
