Nice aroma. Suitable to substitute for Macallan 18; to drink more often. Some burn and bite. — 3 years ago
Glenrothes used to have a relatively unique labeling convention. They would mark the distillation date (vintage date). They did away with all that and adopted a more traditional age statement for their bottles. This was a crazy dark color after seeing 18 years in ex-sherry casks. Delicious honey, nuts, and dried fruits. Smooth. A pleasant “oiliness” though not to the extreme that the Craigellachie has. Long finish. Rich and delicious. Definitely worth seeking out. — 2 years ago
This rating is for “aged 20 yrs” bottle. Color of honey. Nose is powerful with alcohol spices, crayon, aldehyde, baked apple, fermented grains, and slight burned note. Taste is similar, dense, with real nice flowering/honey note to finish up. Aftertaste has some more salty mineral. Very nice. — 3 years ago
Beautiful color of deep red tea. Nose of some tea, sweet and spicy caramel, intense stingy fermented grains, and nice oak. Taste is quite smooth with some tea flavors again, also some citrus peel, sweet apple, while fermented grains flavor comes next. Aftertaste is medium long with nice zesty balance and flowering note. Quite a nice bottle. — 3 years ago
Åldrad i sauternetunnor. Smakar spännande av svarta vinbär. — 3 years ago
Really light nose, berries. Really hints at the Rosé barrels.
Palette is fresh with berries and a very smooth taste. — 4 years ago
