Glenrothes 2007-2015, 8 years, 67% alc.
Removal: sherry barrel no. 3531
Region: Speyside, Scotland Nose: Alcoholic, clear in strength. The nose gets used to it quickly. Behind them raisins, rum balls and strong cigar tobacco come to light. Add some furniture polish, dark chocolate and dried berries. In the background is a bit of filter coffee.
Palate: Dark berries, maple syrup, sugar molasses and raisins. In addition a lot of oak, but without looking really bitter. Espresso beans, salmiak and deep-dark men's chocolate.
Finish: Very long, very sweet, with cedar wood, sultanas and dried oranges. Besides some cocoa.
Conclusion: wonderful part!
