Whisky Reviews for Glenrothes 1990 McC

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.00 points

  1. vredensever scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    The aroma is dense, sweetish: vanilla, cinnamon, pastries, corn, malt, a little bit of belly (lard, meat), lollipops (apple and citrus), resinous branches, grass. With a drop of water more even, but it does not change much. Fresh. The taste is a little sweet: baked goods (bread, cream cakes), vanilla, malt, sweet and sour candies, lemonade, grape seeds, nuts, wood (fresh, tarry and coals), bitterness at the end. Powerful, sharp. With water softer, sweeter, more clearly citrus bitterness. Aftertaste : long, powerful, scorching at first with a fair amount of oak and bitterness. In development bread, malt, notes of sweet baking with vanilla and citrus. At the finish oak and orange peel. Conclusion . Good Glenrothes. Strong, dense, bourbon. Quite a variety. You can play with the water. Someone will say that this is an "atypical" Glenrothes. So what? But not boring. I like this. Score 88 (n22t22f22b22).
