Glenrothes 42 yo 1969/2012 Adelphi

by Oliver Klimek on April 4, 2013

Cask 2 – 42.6%


My Tasting Notes:

Colour: Dark chestnut
Nose: A lovely mix of old leather and wood with dark fruits and chocolate.
Palate: Blackberries, cassis, prunes, dark chocolate, coffee, hints of nutmeg and allspice.
Finish: Long, fruity and slightly dry.
Overall: Here is an amazing example how a whisky can taste ‘old’ with very little wood influence. And it has strong sherry without being a monster. The smoothness of this whisky is exceptional.

Rating: 89/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$

Scored blind for the Malt Maniacs Awards 2012 where it won a silver medal, re-tasted for notes
