N: More refined than the Rothes WB. A dryish though also hugely squidgy fungal sweet malt with sweet tyres [though this could be from the previous Glenrothes of course]. Good good, either way.
T: Dark & deep woody fruits and steeped vanilla indicate this is an old, deeply matured 23yo - not many tired refills here.
F: The squidgy malt never gives up being, er - squidgy.
C: Very good but not perfect. £450 for a bottle i’m told, blimey! Wouldn’t you want more perfection for that price?Scores a B
