1995 Glenrothes Distillery Bottle Single Malt Whisky (750ml)
This hails from the first of Rothes’ stock that was specifically laid down for the vintage release program. The nose shows typical Rothes softness — woolen blankets and malted milk. As it opens. there’s wet linen, caramel fudge, and a hint of mixed berry and dark fruits slowly collapsing into jam. A touch of sherried nuttiness on the palate is followed by thick clover honey and a little crisp malt. The finish is gentle, lightly spiced with a touch of struck match sulfur.
A Speyside Scotch reminiscent of a zesty lemon meringue pie, with its golden color, vanilla, honey and pineapple scent, and sweet, creamy honey-citrus finish.
