of only 309 bottles from cask 2414By popular demand… another magnificent ex-sherry hogshead from Glenrothes Distillery. And possibly the best so far! Rosewood in hue, with crimson lights and a decent bead. A first nose of Caboc (Highland cream cheese rolled in oatmeal), then coffee cream with hazelnuts or coffee cake with buttery icing: incredibly mellow for its age, smooth and rounded. After a while a hint of pomegranate and fresh green plums. A dash of water raises Highland Toffee, then syrup sponge or brandy snaps with whipped cream; only a hint of brimstone. A sweet taste, but lively and spicy across the tongue – a delicious brandy-snap/ginger-snap combo, with an after-taste of syrup sponge – or cake mix with loads of butter. Exceptional!
