    Ohh boy ohh boy, this is pure intense and overpowering magic. That is huge sherry bomb goodness. I never knew that Glenrothes could taste this beautiful and mesmerizingly good. This whisky is young but actually very well matured.

    I can whole heartedly recommend this one especially for all you sherry bomb lovers out there.

  10. molar3rd scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Big big sherry with a capital B. Alcohol wise it’s also a monster, 60%s for sure, this is one hell of a dram! It’s quite meaty, and spicy (chilly, pepper, cinnamon gum), but also fruity with a tiny hint of spent matches.

    Palate: Boom! It’s hot and spicy, and the alcohol bite is HUGE. This is not a dram for those who appreciate light and complex whiskies, it’s in your face kind of a dram. Dried fruit galore, sherry colossus, sweet sugary stuff going on too. It’s a winter warmer for sure. I fancy that.

    Finish: Dried fruit, leather and spices.

    This is a Glenrothes from another world. I wish some OB Glenrothes would be a bit like that (Only a bit, yea?), since more is over the top. This is a yummy dram, and something to really look for if you’re a fan of big, bold, sherry monsters.I use to love that profile, but I find myself less and less attracted to monster drams these days.

    highly recommended for people who think Glenrothes make anaemic drams.
