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.

This was the original vintage which Glenrothes wanted to release but they waited a little while and released the 1998 instead, that wait really paid off and this is a fantastically rounded dram and on
