Glenrothes, 30-Year-Old (Scotland)
A unique concept for The Glenrothes, this is a vatting of casks from the early 1970s bottled as a 30-year-old Glenrothes. Just 1134 bottles were produced. Sandalwood, nutmeg and fresh fruits on the nose. Predominantly Seville oranges, with notes of malt. Big and malty on the palate, with thick cut orange marmalade and mixed spices. Long and fudgy in the finish, with a citric hint at the very end. 50.2% ABV, 70, £245, Duty Free & Travel Retail.

Whiskyfun by Serge

Glenrothes 30 yo (50.2%, OB, 1134 bottles, 2004) Colour: straw. Nose: starts very flowery and fragrant with hints of lavender and orange flower water. Goes on with herbal teas (thyme, mint flavoured tea) and quite some liquorice. Spearmint. Really fragrant and enjoyable. Mouth: powerful and fruity but also rather tannic, oaky. Lots of pineapple, dried oranges, liquorice, lactones… The finish is long and oaky. An interesting contrast between a very perfumy nose (nothing offending here) and a nicely tannic palate.
