  2. Baanaanaabob scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    Creamy and fruity quite reminiscent of tie 73 speysiders, very good

  3. dram-drinker scored this whisky 94 points Photo Moderator

    Really complex and fruity, powerful but balanced - another fantastic old Glenrothes!

    Personally I prefer this one just a little over the #9973 since this is more creamy and a bit more drinkable.
