- A very delicate and easy enjoyable whisky.
Nose: the nose is easy going and smooth. Very delicate and round. Sweet honey, some hint of caramel and oranges. It takes me back to a field in the sun full with wild flowers.
Taste: sweet and suble, oranges, and some ripe bananas. later on in the taste it becomes a little bit drying, reminds of those Liquorice woodsticks i used to chew on as a child.
Finish, long but very subtle, a nice sweet honey sweet oily layer stays behind.
- I taste something salty in these Glenrothes, it would be an ex-Laph. be hogshead?
- Tasting Notes by Adelphi;
1 of only 168 bottles from cask no. 5115Drawn from a refill American oak, ex-Bourbon hogshead, this has a lovely, inviting deep gold hue with good beading. An easy, mild and mellow nosefeel with a noble, rich and fruity nose, caramelised – tart tatin – but with a fresh, zesty note lending a trace of acidity and some Fino sherry behind. The typical tangy flavours of Glenrothes are also apparent, and possibly a hint of mature banana.A smooth texture and a wholly sweet taste, with kirsh cherry liqueur in the middle and a long warming finish. Water generates warm vinyl, a trace of wax, then a faint floral note (wallflowers?). The taste is smooth, sweet and well balanced; drying in the finish, leaving an aftertaste of almond slices.
