Nose
Very rich,bags of citrus peel,more steamed fruit pudding than Christmas cake. There is a creamy smoothness to it as well.
Palate
Soft and easy going. Plenty of red and dark berries with a zip of orange and lemon peel too.
Finish
Fruit compote and cream.
Comment
A great addition to the Glenrothes vintages. Stands up well among its fellow bottlings.

Nose
Rich,floral and intense. Almost liqueur-like,with strong wine notes and rosehip.
Palate
Red berry fruits. Christmas cake mix, orange and marzipan in the mix. Soft and rounded.
Finish
Rich and creamy with lingering fruit.
Comment
Perfectly acceptable example of one of the Glenrothes styles.
