Do glenrothes do a standard 10-12yo ????? I thought they were mostly vintage bottlings.
Glenrothes had an '92, 11yo out not too long ago.
I don't think I've ever heard of a "standard" Glenrothes, even that 11yo is considered a vintage bottling. The only other bottling I know of is the Select Reserve which is anybody's guess as to it's age.
So to keep it all fair I went with the Balvenie ...or I could say Balvenies, both the 10 & 12 are fine drams.
I voted for Dalmore. The rest on the list I've either not had, or didn't think too highly of. Dalmore is pretty good, not great, but it gets big points from me for simply being a quality malt that is always sold at a lower, and reasonable price when compared to other similar malts.
Glenrothes gets my vote because all the non standard bottles they produce (or vintages as they like to call them) they actually are their standard bottles at the end of the day, but I'll keep an eye out for a 10 or 12 yo
oh yea and it is a great distillery of which I've yet to have a bad example.
they do have a distillers select though but that is a NAS bottle
