Glenrothes used to be a go to for me and I would usually open a bottle of it to celebrate special events like my wedding and it was always a crowd pleaser, but something changed around 2010 with their releases and I haven't found myself liking their results as much. I tried a few of their new core range at a whiskey fest a few years ago, but didn't seem to care for any of them. I was lucky to get a sample of their 25 year for 50 dollars hoping for a surprise. On the nose, I get apple custard with anise, nutmeg, cinnamon and lychee fruit. Tasting unveils notes of burnt cinnamon stick, toffee apples, custard creaminess and anise spices that finishes off with lots of wood spice, a slight burn and orchard fruit. Overall it's a nice whiskey, I certainly wouldn't pass on being offered a pour of it, but in terms of price, this is a hard pass.
50.0 USD per Pour
