Whisky or Whiskey

Interesting fact… Glenrothes 1988 (bottled 2011) whisky spells its name whisky as it originates in Scotland. Had it been produced in America its name would be Glenrothes 1988 (bottled 2011) whiskey, instead of whisky.

Glenrothes 1988 Bottling Note

Described by Glenrothes' Brand Heritage Director, Ronnie Cox as "a fantastic reminder of how beautifully The Glenrothes ripens from vibrant, zesty youth to rich, full-bodied maturity." This is a fabulous whisky from Glenrothes, aged for more than 20 years in a mix of Spanish and American oak. The result is a classic Winter fireside dram!

Best whisky I've tasted

I'm a new scotch drinker (under 2 years) so I have limited experience. It's not the most expensive bottle I've purchased, but it is the best whisky I've tasted. Partially because I prefer smooth sweeter scotch, but also because this batch is so damn good. There's no point in reviewing it because the description is dead on. It's silky smooth, complex, delicious from beginning to end, and worth every penny. If you love scotch, you need to own a bottle. Anyone who rates this less than 9/10 has either been ruined forever by drinking too many $500+ bottles, or they just don't like sweet rich whiskys. Buy it, enjoy it, and remember it forever.

Probably the best whisky I have tried to date. The nose is full of apple and berries and there is just a touch of smoke in the palate - subtle, but enough to give some depth to the flavor. The aftertaste lasts and lasts in a very pleasant way. An excellent whisky and a permanent fixture on my shelf.

I bought a bottle of this and so have loved every drop. I'm going to need to get another bottle or seven because I know that I won't be able to keep this on my shelf for long.

full-bodied maturity is right

I like Glenrothes in general. Usually very smooth. This is very complex and warm. Age has added to the amount of taste, not reduced as often is the case. A bit too dry and oaky. This might deserve a 5 star rating, but based on personal preference I give it 3.5 /Joakim
