A 1975 vintage from Glenrothes. This is part of a rare release of 3,708 bottles, bottled in 2006.
Ask #WhiskySanta for Glenrothes 1975.
He'll grant one wish per day until Christmas...
The nose is warm and quite sweet. A little honeyed sweetness with vanilla spice and toasted cereal notes. The palate is quite full with a velvet-texture and sublime mouth feel. The barley is crisp and toasted, a little melted butter on granary toast with runny honey smothered on top. The finish is quite long with subtle warmth and honeyed oaked tannins on the tail.
Way to go Glenrothes!
This is the Glenrothes you want! No others compare....except for maybe the 1971?
