Got a quick Glenrothes today. I find their range a bit odd because most of their stuff is NAS with strange names on, but once you get to the vintage stuff the price goes up so much as to make me never want to bother trying any. Luckily, at the whisky show you could try loads you wouldn’t normally get to.
Glenrothes 1992 44.2%
Nose: Lovely rich Sherry, sweet honey, heather, raisin, Sherry spice.
Taste: Rich, heather, honey, then more Sherry, raisin, more dry then with oak and coffee.
Finish: Medium length. Dry oak and dried heather.
OB bottled 2014, 22yo. Like a Highland Park 12 without the smoke. This is nice but a little too oaky and not enough of anything else to give it any higher than…
