A beautifully sherried Glenrothes bottled by Mackillop's Choice. Matured for an impressive 33 years in a single Sherry Cask before being bottled at 40.9% ABV.
A real treat for fans of the sherried Speyside style, this has lots of the classic fruit cake, spice and sweetness flavours. While not a sherry monster by any means, this is a nicely balanced malt and the lower ABV makes this very approachable.
Official Tasting Notes
Colour: Pale amber.
Nose: Nicely balanced Sherry influence. Plenty of sweetness and raisins in a fruit-cake, with hints of liquorice too.
Palate: Sweet Sherry, fruit-cake, candied orange peel and liquorice.
Finish: A very long finish that starts sweet and ends spicy.
