A stunningly good dram from our friends in Rothes.
The Vintage 2001 bottled in 2016 was selected from a variety of casks to deliver soft but stimulating and conversational properties. It combines the maturity of oaky vanilla, with the fullness of ripe black cherries and has a lingering, typically Glenrothes finish of soft spices.
It has wonderful length and depth, hugely satisfying and an excellent demonstration of the Malt Master's skill and dedication to the art of wood management.
Bouquet: Lemon meringue pie, sandalwood and a hint of black cherries.
Palate: Oaky vanilla, cream topped with grated nutmeg.
Finish: Sweet oaky vanilla with lingering soft dry spiciness.
