Posted: November 27, 2014 in Glenrothes, Scotch Whisky A-G

Single Malts of Scotland Glenrothes 1990 (23 year old) 49.4%

Bourbon Cask 35484/ Dist: 1990 Btl: March 2014/ Tasted: July 2014

Nose: Fresh, citric (lemon) and gristy with hints of baked fruit and spice. Quite grassy with a lovely, sweet barley note and some light oak.  

Palate: Showing a little more oak than the nose, but it’s still quite fresh with some sweet-ish barley, honey and citrus. Good depth and intensity.  

Finish: Long and crisp with white fruit and lingering citrus joined by some sweet spices. Very pleasant.  

Conclusion: A pleasant, summery, aperitif dram.
