  1. molar3rd scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Nose: A very dark sort of sherry profile, with a lot of dark fruit, red fruit and dried fruit in the form of sultana, plum,date and also some dark chocolate, a whiff of espresso and coffee beans, and lots of spicy marmalade. This is a monster sherry, and it’s very thick and packed with flavoured. This cask was working nicely…

    Palate: Boom. it’s rather massive but not overly so, considering the 67% it’s a nice surprise. You still get a spicy pepper / chilly entry, and then load of prunes and jam, a ripe orange marmalade and also smoky notes of BBQ marinade, and some cured meat, cinnamon and spent matches.

    Finish: Sugars and prune jam, some smoke, and getting a little bitter with a coffee touch to it, and also cardamom.

    Bottom line:

    This, my friends, is a cracking young whisky. Again I find myself asking Why don’t Glenrothes bother to bottle some of that stuff at natural strength, with real flavours, and not the boring stuff they usually do (young NAS, or indistinct vintages).

    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    Another in this series of very young, very powerful and rich Glenrothes. Just turned 7 years, this has once again been matured in a very active 1st fill Spanish oak, ex-Sherry hogshead.
    The colour is polished rosewood with copper lights and the beading virtually non-existent due mainly, we believe, to its youth.
    Despite the very high strength, the nose is very approachable and similar to cask no. 3519, with freshly baked cinnamon cake, then classic Dundee Cake with rich dried fruits, baking spice and moist Marsala, and slightly burnt edges. There is also a hint of Highland toffee in the background.
    Sherry and Christmas cake in abundance in the taste, with a surprising earthy note (especially for such a young whisky).
    Baking paper and pencil boxes becoming slightly mentholated with more dried fruit cake.
