World's Best New Release

Glenrothes 25 Years old

Medium amber hue with a nice light malty nose.

This clean and accessible malt has an interesting and layered flavour profile of almonds, sherry, malted barley, chocolate, dried plum and iodine.

The finish is long and equally layered – hearty with a bit of heat
Mike Miller

Sherry and fruit notes. Rich, creamy body. Some oak.

Beautifully balanced
William Dowd

Elegant, rich and deep. Earthy, sylvestry. Wet moss, mushrooms opening on indoor aromas. Gingerbread. honey, toffee. Superb dovetailing aromatic display. Full bodied. Rich intense sherry notes. Oak shines through dried fruit flavours. Intense liquorice flavours. Beautiful. A Speyside laird
Martine Nouet

Sweet and floral, blackcurrant Starburst, candy on the nose.
Barley sugar, grapefruit and lemon. Nice balance of fruit, spice and an underlay of wispy smoke to finish
