Though I'm primarily a wine guy, I have had quite the single malt education over the past few years, courtesy of our terrific selection. My taste for single malts has really developed, and my personal collection is slowly growing. This one stands out and is certainly one of my favorites. It has the intensity of flavor and presence that only long, careful cask-aging lends a spirit. Toffee, candied orange, vanilla and spices are all there, as well as a gently floral finish and that impeccable Glenrothes balance. I don't use the word value and $100 together often when describing our products, but this is absolutely a value and one to contemplate on your own or in the company of a few close friends.
