  5. TastyDram did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    The bitter flavours are maybe a bit too dominant for my palate but this is a very good and consistent independent Glenrothes. A few drops of water transform it from a good to a very good single malt. A rare treat and very different from the standard Glenrothes offerings.
    • Nose
       The first aromatic wave is one of pineapple and melons. The nose stings a little so swirl gently. Grape nectar and dextrose. Aromatized brandy wine with apples. A light spiciness makes sure everything is in balance. Cumin, turmeric and crushed coriander seeds. Sweet yellow prunes, almond liquor and Japanese prune brandy.
      With water there's a whiff of tropical fruit. The sweetness is less pronounced. A little bit of bitterness from melon peel. Panna cotta with passion fruit sherbet.
    • Taste
      A powerful combination of sweet and bitter. Lots of oak, yet the subdued sweetness holds ground. Prunes and Mirabelle plums. Gooseberry, honey and vanilla. A rich cake served with a fruit salad. Light and oily mouthfeel.
      Water makes the whisky pleasantly soft. After a while a slight bitter spiciness emerges. And yet again there's some fruity crème de banane and peaches.
    • Finish
      A warm finale that dries the mouth with spices and a final burst of banana ice cream.
