  • Intro:

    This is a 14 year old bottling of Glenrothes distillate that has spent some period of time maturing in a refill port pipe. It is bottled at cask strength, NCF, no color added, by the SMWS.

  • Nose:

    Sweet cream, honey, buttered popcorn, faint melon, super rich creamy vanilla. Absolutely decadent. Peaches and cream. Strawberries. Doughnuts. Pepper, marzipan. Brine.

  • Taste:

    Thick, rich, faint heat. Vanilla, cream, butter, almonds, sponge cake, nutty and sweet. Incredibly rich and decadent. Thick fruits, dark cocoa.

  • Finish:

    Long rich sweet vanilla cream melon strawberries and cream, Werther's, some nice wine influence.

  • Overall:

    Phenomenal, and one of my favorite IB casks of the year. The richness is astounding, the flavors diverse and complex and overpoweringly delicious. The port doesn't come through nearly as much as I would expect but I'm not disappointed. This is easily the best Glenrothes I've had yet. Just bonkers.

  • Score:

    8
