Michael Jackson

Nose
Waxy orange-skins. Spices. Liquorice root.
Palate
Oily but firm. Dried apricots. Dates. Anise. Nougat.
Finish
Lightly dry, dusty, spiciness. Gently warming. Log fires. Good oak.
Comment
I have always felt that Glenrothes deserved to be more widely appreciated and this bottling confirms that opinion. It is on the sweet side, but beautifully rounded. A sophisticated afterdinner malt.

Jim Murray

Nose
Extraordinary malt concentrate tempered with intense vanilla. Brooding and fabulously balanced.
Palate
A curious but enormously delicious amalgam of rich barley, toffee and liquorice. Extremely sweet throughout and with the softest of bodies.
Finish
Long, melt-in-the-mouth, with a hint of honeycomb and countering spice.
Comment
An improbably well-balanced and deliciously layered malt for it's age. An outstanding Speysider.
