Glenrothes 1980/2004 (56.3%, OB, cask #17563, 558 bottles) Colour: amber. Nose: this one starts on pure coffee and bitter chocolate, very dry and pleasantly so. It seems that this was a superb sherry cask! Goes on with walnuts, toasted bread, orange cake, fruitcake, raisins, then Spanish ham (patanegra), old rancio, balsamico, rose water, gewurztraminer, bitter oranges... What an areopagus! Extremely classy, top-notch sherry cask. With water: my, it got even nicer! Beefier, more organic... Chinese prune sauce, horse sweat, high-end sherry vinegar, best Havana cigars (unlit)... This is stunning nose.
Mouth (neat): fantastic sherry! Huge concentration but all that is very drinkable. Old sloe gin, old plum eau de vie, coffee-schnapps, prunes in Armagnac... Well, I’m sure you get the picture. With water: wow! Now we get many plants and herbs, old Chartreuse, mint, eucalyptus, verbena, liquorice... Truly excellent. Finish: maybe not the longest ever but it’s so perfectly profiled... Comments: a masterpiece, very sherried AND very balanced, which doesn’t happen that often. SGP:553 – 93 points.
