  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Powerful, even nagging, we have hazelnuts with ripe fruit behind. Toasted vanilla makes its appearance, as does the creaminess of a bourbon cask.
      With water, very fragrant on roasted hazelnuts.
    • Taste
      Very intense, fruity and juicy.
      With water, more supple and silky with frangipane.
    • Finish
      Slightly aggressive spices, better proportioned and sparkling with water.

      Enthusiasm
      Nose 4/5
      Mouth 3/5 (4/5 with water)
      Final 2/5 (4/5 with water)

    I personally think that a sherry barrel maturation goes better with Glenrothes, but this 20-year-old whisky from the bourbon barrel is simply beautifully done. Vanilla, honey, caramel and a little bit of coconut come from the barrel. The surprisingly fruity character of the distillery without the sherry barrel influence (which goes in the direction of tropical fruits, especially pineapple) comes through wonderfully. In the finish, pleasantly spicy notes owed, among other things, nutmeg. It's round, it's complex, it's voluminous, that's just right, really good.

    The 51.3% vol. leave a little leeway to dilute. Then the fruity notes come out even more clearly.
