Very enjoyable. If you believe in whisky regions, this would be your typical unsherried Speysider. Not the most complex of malts, but the balance of fruit, sweetness and spice is just right. – Rating: 86/100

A nice malt that needs some time to open up, the mix of fruit and nuts is quite pleasant. – Rating: 82/100

A very fine dram, nicely balanced and not too woody. – Rating: 87/100

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

It has a lovely nose, but palate and finish are disappointing, a rather anticlimactic dram. – Rating: 76/100

There is a tiny amount of sulphur that enhances more than it disturbs. The profile is very much on sweet dried fruits. – Rating: 87/100

If you ever wondered why some distilleries don’t like their name on independent bottlings, this forgettable whisky from a dead cask gives you the answer. – Rating: 64/100

Glenrothes 1998/2009 Murray McDavid

December 19, 2011

Not quite as sweet as one would expect from a sweet wine finish, this is quite an enjoyable dram. A nice amount of spice complements the fruity flavours. – Rating: 85/100

This is a nice dram, all flavours are well put together with nothing standing out. There is nothing really noteworthy to report, though, and it has quite an alcohol bite, too. – Rating: 83/100

This is an uncomplicated dram for causual sipping, nothing more and nothing less. Not bad, but there are cheaper alternatives. – Rating: 81/100

Glenrothes Kirsch 07/1990 – 02/2000

Quite enjoyable, but the youthful spirit character is a bit too dominant – Score: 80/100

Glenrothes 1990 18 yo Cadenhead

July 24, 2009

Almost like the big brother of the Blair Athol Dark Sherry. They take the same direction, but due to its higher age, there is more wood influence and complexity. Just a drop can keep you busy for minutes. – Score: 92/100
