Tasted as a blindsample, with the prior knowledge that is Signatory. The nose and the first impression in the mouth let tap on a decanter, but then shows the wateriness. The betrays the Glenrothes, similar impressions I already had in a few, even in CS.
The first tip on Decanter suggests but that it is a beautiful, gracefully matured whisky with a lot of potential. The dilution unfortunately hogs the dots.
Blind tip: Glenrothes 20yo, 46%, Sherry Casks
Sherry notes dominate the nose, with nutty-moist muff, as if the barrels had long been filled with sherry.
The complex, beautiful nose lets hope for a fine dry sherry whisky and promises a higher alcohol strength than he finally has.
Again, age Sherry dominates. It was certainly a dry, pleasant little sweetness and just a nice maturation. Initially, the alcohol strength is excellently involved, but increasingly it has to be diluted. He looks watery and a little inhibited - as if he has great potential that he is not allowed to exploit. Pity! This inhibition then betrays the still.
