Product Description

When the Magazine "The Wine Enthusiast" ran a tasting of the 50 Best Spirits of 2004, The Glenrothes Vintage 1974, bottled in 2003, got the highest mark of them all (a trifling 96 out of 100). 

Martine Nouet, who writes for the enlightenment of all who read Whisky Magazine wrote this about the 1974: "Like being at a baker's or in a confectionary shop. Elegant, comforting, conversational. Indoors summer dram."

Featured in the book 1001 whiskies you must  try before you die book

Our tasting notes:

Nose: Leather seats in an antique luxury car, nut brittle, rich old fashioned toffee, aromatic floral and spice notes, creamy oak, malty honey on malt loaf, subtle hint of smoked honeycomb.

Palate: A big malty and juicy delivery that softens into dried fruit, creamy  oak, banana fudge, honey on sultana toast, touches of floral and aromatric spice.

Finish: Creamy vanilla fudge, juicy sherry soaked dried fruit, malty, floral honey.

An old whisky that has none of the overoaked quality of some beyond 25 years old, classic Glenrothes mellow house style but with more fruit, a richer, juicier mouthfeel and more luxurious finish.
