Dunnage warehouse floors, damp and earthy. Woodiness.
Mouth coating, nutmeg, Italian biscuits. A good full bodied dram.
Aniseed chews, liquorice and freshly polished wood.
Glenrothes-Glenlivet 16yo (2002) 55.2%: HHD A’
Nose – Boiled sweets, fruit polos? Torn laurel leaves, hot water crust, a little leatherette. Very gentle, quite wine-like though with a touch of the distillery visitors centre.
Body – Off dry, slightly burnt underneath, retronasal salted caramel. Very oiled, quite a classy balance of sugar, wax and cask.
Finish – Long and peppery, fruit oils are building though. Liquorice root at the end.
A subtle and undemanding whisky that builds complexity and black pepper and liquorice as you sip it. Quite rewarding, if unconventional.
