Whisky Reviews for Glenrothes 1997 Cl

32 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.29 points

  1. Thermidor scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    It's good, but most likely the cask would have yielded similar quality results regardless of the spirit.
    • Nose
      Feels like a typical contemporary strongly sherried cask. Meat stock cubes, meat pastries, slightly rubbery sherry. It's robust and well put together, but there are many like this one. Somewhat Glendronach if you catch my drift.
    • Taste
      Quite strong and biting neat, but with a rich, full sherriness that hasn't got any unpleasant notes like sulphur and relatives, or lipstick. Works wonderfully in the mouth as is, but sadly water makes it Just Another Sherry Cask. 
    • Finish
      The finish is mostly on the sherry, with the meat pastries coming back in the tail.

  2. ctu scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    A really big sherry bomb, stray oaky, dry flavors in the end. 89/90.
    • Nose
      Big sherry. Antique leather, prune, black currant, fig, tobacco, marzipan and spicy oak.
    • Taste
      Powerful, oily. Forest fruits, sherry, milk caramel, coffee and tobacco. Tannic oak. Spices: nutmeg, pepper and ginger.
    • Finish
      Long, dry, oaky, spicy.

    Ein Sherryhammer a la old school - a true christmas galore! Top! PLV: 9/10
    • Nose
      Maggie satt! Fleischig, schwefelig und staubig; dunkle herbe Schokolade; Holzpolitur, Zedernholz, Zirgarrenrauch, merh Schweflenoten; kanidierte rote Früchte, schwere süße und zugleich leicht bittere Rumkirschen; altes, säurebetontes Eichenholz, dunkle Schokolade, Espresso, Irish Coffee? Noten von Cognac;
    • Taste
      Trocken/staubig und eine gehörige Portion altes Eichenholz, sehr mächtig! Edel polierte Zigarrenkiste, kalter Zigarrenrauch, mehr poliertes Holz, speckiges Leder, Schwefel bzw. Schießpulver, verborgene Noten von Rumkirschen, Sherryfrucht im Hintergrund - subtil alter und gereifter Sherry; Kakaopulver, Tiramisu, Rumkuchen;
    • Finish
      Würzig, Eiche satt! Wieder Rumfrüchte und das Tiramisu, sehr mächtig!

  5. Erik Elixer scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Tasted with Whiskyclub Spakenburg
    • Nose
      Leather, black currant, cassis, drying and custard. Dates, some pepper and orange.
    • Taste
      Forest fruits, coffee and Butterscotch.
    • Finish
      Drying with Butterscotch and forst fruits.

  7. markjedi1 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Very intense Glenrothes! Not for the faint hearted.
    • Nose
      This is what I tend to call ‘deep sherry’! Very umami on roast beef, gravy included, dark chocolate, plums and fresh figs. Some bicycle tyre (rubber, but not over the top) and tobacco leaves. Very good indeed. 
    • Taste
      Nicely oily and immediately very spicy on the palate with nutmeg, ginger and even some curcuma. Again those deep sherry notes that make him dark and mysterious. Some coughing syrup, roast beef returns as does the tobacco. Beef jerky, treacle and liquorice. Chocolate kicks in. Powerhouse with a mildly drying effect.
    • Finish
      Wonderfully long finish, but very dry now. At the death a surprising salty note appears, going head to head with the chocolate. I need a glass of water, now…
