Oh yes, I really like that! Super harmoniously balanced between distillery character and barrel aging. The influence of the sherry cask is rather nutty and spicy, which combines great with the earthy, almost musty distillery character of Glenrothes (which I like very much). Nice caramel notes serve as a binding agent and make sure that musty distillery archer and nuttiness / spiciness from the barrel don't get out of hand and even go towards Nutella every now and then (awesome!). Nothing bothers you there, nothing is dominant, everything is simply wonderfully harmoniously interwoven and yet very expressive. It is so pleasant to drink and it is so much fun that, as an 11-year-old youngster, he has absolutely earned the 90s point region.
I'm also trying to make a comparison with the new 12-year-old from the Soleo Collection: I think both are fantastic, although I really like the nuttiness of this one. I still remember the new 12-year-old Soleo a bit more earthy / musty, paired with more fruit. Both of them settle down on a similar, comparable level. In my opinion, you can also buy the new bottling here without hesitation, you don't get a very different whisky.
