Glenrothes 2006 Celebration of the Cask (Morrison & Mackay)
From the Morrison & Mackays Celebration of the Cask range this Glenrothes 2006 is a young 11 years old, quite unusual for the Celebration of the Cask range, but is full of flavour.
Matured in an ex-sherry butt, this produced 610 bottles at a whopping 65.5% ABV which sounds way more than anyone would want to drink but it's actually really tasty, this really is just like single cask mars bar with toffee caramel and chocolate, then underlying savoury notes.
One of the nicest sherry cask whiskies i've had in a long time, brilliant stuff and a real contender for one of the slots in the top 5 whiskies of 2017 for me.
Sold out at Master of Malt but if you find one anywhere snap it up.
Chocolate and toffee with lashings of treacle, spices and fruit cake mix, this is really enticing, I want to spend all day nosing this dram, it’s huge ABV doesn’t come across as spirity, elements of cream crackers and rich tea biscuits.
Huge fruit cake spices, wood oak, creamy and then lashings of melted caramel and mixed milk chocolate, a hint of praline and those cream crackers again.
Huge, lasting, yum
