  1. fgg scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

      Fruit and vanilla. Some apple, pear. In the back it has something floral. Sweet. Honey.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Mouth full of vanilla. Something fruity on the tongue. A bitterness and the high ABV do not leave the taste completely unaffected. Pepper at the end.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium to long. Bitter on the tongue, slowly to something sweeter.

  4. KayMeertens scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      A soft maltiness, like shortbread. On the edge of cardboard but definitely not unpleasant. A little apple and vanilla. Later some honey in the background.
    • Taste
      That maltiness again, with some honey and a spicy edge to it. But also a less common side for a Glenrothes: Liquorice and smoke. Again a little apple, as well as fig. Water releases a little wine gum sweetness and vanilla.
    • Finish
      Toast, shortbread, liquorice, caramel and apple.
