Starting with the aroma. As you may well be expecting from The Glenrothes, your senses are greeted initially with a fruity character. Ripe peaches are pretty current with additional hints of candied peel, sweet ground ginger, contemporary almonds, and a trace of rose oil fragrance. That fruity character carries on as you taste the whisky — tropical fruits and orange zest is balanced from a refined vanilla sweetness, light oak, and mild spice. The finish is richly sweet as the fruit notes persist and remain gently aromatic.
1 extremely intriguing factor to notice — at minimum from my palate — is that though The Glenrothes 36 is 41.4% alcohol by quantity (ABV), the preliminary aroma as perfectly as the bite and snap it possesses on the initial sip undoubtedly implies a increased, practically overproof, strength. I experienced to do a double-take of the bottle make certain we weren’t, in actuality, consuming some overproof stuff. Much from taking absent from the practical experience and satisfaction, this feeling invited me to savor the whisky in my mouth extended, as 1 may with a cask power expression.
