Glenrothes 1988 Vintage
The eldest of the whiskies we were sampling tonight and one that i really really need to buy a bottle of, this stuff is fantastic and just suits my personal style of whisky perfectly.
Another cracking Twitter Tasting, this time I was invited in by Amanda from The Whisky Lounge to a Glenrothes Vintages Twitter Tasting.
Other than the Select Reserve I've not had a huge amount of dealings with Glenrothes so i was really looking forward to this.
An initial hit of bees wax and furniture polish fall off to banoffee pie, undercooked pastry, summer berries and some light sawdust a little touch of dusty leather book jacket and cranberry fruit tea
Sweet and Spicy, the spicy kick is like clove, cinnamon and demerera sugar topped bramley apples.
a little tannin drying but sweet and appley too
