Re: May 2012 Tasting - The Newly Popped
99/11 SV Glen Rothes Un-Chillfiltered Collection Cask 12567 Tiffany's Wine and Spirits Kalamazoo
I want to like this, first impression is not bad, but I have a lot of bad memories from the likes of Aultmore and Glen Moray. This seems to be in their style, light, and refreshing, lots of lemon and other citrus's, and hints of oil. So while it seems so much like those others, it somehow succeeds where the others have failed, while definitely a lot of lemon, it lacks the overwhelming Lemon Cleaner the other have had. The taste is also a lot fuller, with a good bit of malt and sweetness. The lemon presents its self as almost a non sour filling to a lemon meringue pie.
The Clerk at Checkout asked me if I had purchased this before, because he said he was quite fond of it and insisted that they were down to their last case, so it won't be around much longer. From my first taste perspective, I a not sure I would pick up another bottle personally.
