  1. Dre73 scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    In the nose it's much better than later on in body and finish. Less tasty as the nose did suggest.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Fruity, red fruits, spicy, cinnamon. Prunes, some coffee, sherrycask influences, but not very heavy. Some chocolate later on.
    • Taste
      82 82
      First soft and smooth, later on some pepper on the tongue, spicy. In taste it's a little pale and flat.
    • Finish
      81 81
      Still a bit spicy, some pepper, not a very long finish.

  4. fgg scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Soft sherry nose. Typical Glenrothes. Slightly fruity, some burnt sugar, caramel.
    • Taste
      The taste seems a bit watery at first, but after a while the dram becomes nicely creamy and full in the mouth. Fruity and sweet. Soft.
    • Finish
      Medium dead long.
