Glenrothes Maltman, 1989 27 years, 46,0%, 0,7L, Oloroso cask 7476, 282 bottles.
The distillery has 10 stills and 20 washbacks and produces 5.5 million liters per year. Most disappears into the blend ‘Cutty Sark’. A special event: In 1922 there was a fire and 700,000 liters of whisky was lost. After the explosion of the barrels the whisky flowed into the river: Burn of Rothes and the trout could be caught by hand.
Nose: Great influences of sherry with dried pruns and raisin.
Taste: Some nutella, sherry and dark chocolate. Lovely oily mouth coating texture with good warmth.
Finish: Cappucino and cinnamon spice…one for Christmas time?..
