1998 Glenrothes Distillery Bottle Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

SKU #1134508 92 points Wine Enthusiast

 Distilled in 1998, this Speyside Scotch has a soft feel and an enormous butterscotchy flavor and aroma, lightened by dark chocolate, clove and cinnamon fireworks. Pair with chocolate or other dessert fare.  (12/2011)

Whisky Advocate

 One thing I enjoy about these vintage releases are the differences in personality from one vintage to the next. This 1998 vintage follows shortly after the 1994, and while that one was elegant and bright in personality, this 1998 is more viscous and heavier in weight. It shows bright fruit (lemon, caramelized pineapple, tangerine), honeyed vanilla, and marzipan with a peppering of cinnamon and ginger. Perhaps the 1994 as an aperitif, and the 1998 a digestif? The 1998 is not nearly as post-prandial as, say, the 1972 vintage, but it has more weight than the 1994 vintage...(Vol. 19, #3)

Wine Spectator

 A transformative malt, with honey, cheese and olive aromas that turn spicy sweet on the palate, with maple, licorice and cinnamon. The deceptively long finish starts with vibrant spices, then gets sweet-almost tutti-frutti-several layers back.  (2/2011)

K&L Notes

A lovely vintage expression from Glenrothes that shows soft fruit, golden raisins, and rich vanilla along with the classic viscosity of the distillery style.
