Lovely lightly sherried Glenrothes. I find it very back to basic, and delicately complex.

Mooie, rijke sherry neus. Tonen van citrus, wat noten. Lekker.

Taste

Mooi complex karakter. Zoete sherry. Citrus. Caramel. En wat houttonen.

Finish

Volle, romige finish.

Comments

Zeer fijne dram. Mijn eerste Glenrothes na de Select Reserve en meteen een verrassend goeie.

Nose

Lots of caramel! I would say some hazelnut/macadamia nuts inbetween. Fatty vanilla ice cream.

Taste

Kind of fatty, creme brulee, caramel. warm mouthcoating vanilla and sultanas. Some nuts in the aftertaste. As well as some dried herbs.

Finish

Quite a bitter finish of the alcohol

Comments

To my liking there are too many sweet flavours in this whisky, in the finish a bit off balance with the alcohol.

Nose

Strong and big nose because of the alcohol. Lots of caramel, butterscotch, crème brûlée, brown Sugar and other sweet stuff. Pecan nuts and almonds. Also some dry oak twigs.  Perhaps some milk chocolate with hazelnuts (yeah nutella).

Taste

Still lots of alcohol, but pretty drinkable. Thick and oily. Custard cake, vanilla puding, marzipan and again some hazelnuts.

Finish

Warm and dry wood with some dried citrus fruit.
