This is an IB from Signatory capitalizing on Glenrothes spirit. It is matured in a refill sherry butt and bottled at 46% ABV. It is not colored or filtered.
Sweet honey. Nutty sherry. Leather, tobacco, vanilla and butter cream. Faint stewed fruits. Faint sulfur.
Thin mouthfeel, faint sulfur. NO real heat. Sweet melon, faint sherry notes that are reminiscent of PX. Vanilla and butter cream are pretty prominent with a clover honey note.
Short, mildly astringent. Growing sulfur character. Some sweet cherry notes and then its gone.
I think the nose was the best part of this - super complex and inviting. Unfortunately, the thin character of the palate and the short finish really keep it from climbing higher than a 5.
