Gavin D. Smith

86
Nose
Rich and sherried, with milk chocolate, ripe apples, ginger, sultanas, vanilla and worn leather.
Palate
Smooth and full, with honey, dark chocolate and rich, spicy tropical fruits. More leather, black pepper and pleasing aged oak.
Finish
Milky cocoa and soft oak.
Comment
Rounded, confident and complex. Old Glenrothes in top form.

Joe Bates

77
Nose
Rather pleasing fruity bouquet, orange blossom, light and very gentle.
Palate
Sweeter fruit notes on the palate, mango, along with some woody notes and a hint of red chilli.
Finish
Lingering honey sweetness.
Comment
A complex whisky which demands not to be rushed.
