Dispatched From Campbeltown
3 hogsheads of Glenrothes – a dram that doesn’t feel as strong as the ABV would suggest.
Out of stock
Vanilla, golden syrup and hints of nougat and chocolate sprinkles. Faint green tea notes with butterscotch.
Lemon drizzle cake, touches of white pepper, freshly mown grass, autumnal forests with blackberries and raisin butter.
Tingling spices give way to warm toffee sauce and cranberries.
Glenrothes-Glenlivet 9yo (2009) 65.3%: 3 x HHD A+
Nose – Attack of the young fruity bourbon casks! Even sweeter and brighter than the others, like a jelly sweet in a hot toddler’s hand. Cocktail territory.
Body – Oily boiled sweets, like a cherry tune but without the medicinality. Extremely drinkable.
Finish – Medium – the fruit is overblown and almost dirty now, but the peppery tannins make me want more.
Only vague hints at the age on this one, a robust and compelling drammer.
