  • Distiller:

    Glenrothes

  • Bottler:

    Glenrothes

  • ABV:

    48.8%

  • Age:

    NAS

  • Price:
    $$$$$
  • Intro:

    Distilled by Glenrothes and matured exclusively in seasoned, first fill sherry casks, this release is bottled at 48.8% ABV - the strength selected by Glenrothes team. Notably, an age statement is absent, and the casks are seasoned, so there are some conspicuous flags to be aware of. Let's dive in.

  • Nose:

    Thin, light, sweet. Creamy, coffee, a touch of maple and butterscotch. Light pepper and sulfur.

  • Taste:

    Thin on the palate. Buttery, sweet, a touch of caramel and toffee. Bitter, a touch of pepper and sulfur.

  • Finish:

    Long finish, a touch hot, but plenty of sherry character.

  • Overall:

    Enjoyable and fun, but with a bump in proof and more sherry influence, this could be a monster. The age doesn't seem to be a real big sticking point here - it doesn't drink spritely, hot or spirit forward which is encouraging, and it's clear that there is some desirable

  • Score:
