  1. Kostya scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    a very decent Grenrothes version, a big improvement from their NAS entry malt 

    (may 2016)
    • Nose
      (neat) black raisins, red grapes, treacle, apple peel(water) with water nose becomes lighter and delicate, some floral notes appear, raw beets, light syrup
    • Taste
      (neat) very similar to nose, heavy dark fruits, fruit jam, quite rounded and soft, decent oak influence, touch of smoke (water) vanilla, white pepper, syrup
    • Finish
      medium long, quite nice, some sherry notes

  2. wisekycourse scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    a good dram for ... no questions, a Glenrothes what!
    • Nose
      vanilla pastry, velvety barley, and very pronounced flavor!
    • Taste
      the caramel, the vanilla ... where is the spoon?, a velvety side that appears and stays, the malt that embals
    • Finish
      medium to long, with a return of sweet spices!

  3. Andytka3 scored this whisky 71 points Connoisseur

    N- Sweet malt, earthy and pepper with soft fruits, citrusy. Musky wet oak at the back. P- Spicy with waves of hot pepper, currants and cherry sweet
    fragrant, but overpowering by the spices. Unpleasant oak lingers.

    F- Short, polished. Consistent throughout with cherry and peppery. Raw and spicy.
    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

    N: Pancakes
