Whisky Reviews for Glenrothes 2007 AD

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.30 points

  1. DunklerRabe scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    I've tried several similar bottlings recently, i.e. younger whiskies
    matured in an almost uberactive sherry cask. Every single time the
    results were astonishing and this one is no exception.

    First
    thing all of those have in common is a very mild nose in terms of
    alcoholic strength even though all of them were bottled at a cask
    strength of at least 60% Vol. with this Glenrothes being the strongest
    one.

    Second thing of course is the heavy sherry influence. It
    kills the character of the distillery almost completely. You can't
    distinguish between them, at least I can't. Usually Glenrothes produces a
    very distinctive aroma profile but I can't find it here.

    You get
    everything you expect from a sherry cask matured whisky with that
    color: Oranges, blood oranges, in general dark fruits, nuts, vanilla, toffee...

    On the palate you will feel the alcohol of course and there is plenty of room to add some water if you like.

    There is some oak in the finish but it is very subtle and loses the fight against the sherry aromas and the alcohol.
