Review and Tasting

Sampled before 1st May 2011

Appearance

Medium golden with green tinges.

Aroma

Tight nose loosens with some water to reveal the signature Glenrothes linseed oily nose with bracken, oily smoked mackerel, lightly salted and spiced vanilla.

Taste

Fabulously integrated and complex palate is initially oily going to macadamia nut, then vanilla, through to slight wood smoke, ending in salty warm spices such as nutmeg. Zesty marmalade runs throughout with controlled sherry notes and balanced oak.

Aftertaste

Huge finish has oaky vanilla with warming spices and fruitcake.
