Re: Glenrothes tasting Phoenix AZ
Here are the notes from the tasting.
Select reserve: very oily, a nutty oilyness that I did not like with some caramel. Overall not very goog.
1991: toffee, butterscotch and vanilla. Short finish. Better bit still very average.
1985: solid with butterscotch, vanilla, and some dried fruit (apricots). More oomph and fire.
1975: very good with canned peaches, dried apricots, hints of pineapple, spice and more full bodied then the others.
The tasting was ok but I left not very impresses by glenrothes. I felt that bang for the buck it was lacking a little.
I also tried two other malts at their bar.
Caol ila de(not available in the us so I had to try it). Very good the sweetness went with the oilyness. A very good whisky I just wish it was available here.
Ardbeg nam veist: amazing, well balanced with peat, lime, other citrus and nice saltiness. After christmas I will buy a bottle.
LSD, I wasn't the person who posted on "what does john know" but what did they say.
Also thanks to ganga, LSD and mikeymad for your posts.
