Glenrothes 1978 Vintage Review

Glenrothes 1978 This is an outstanding dram from The Glenrothes in the 1978 Vintage.

Review based on a double double (100ml mini) kindly passed to me by my friend Yoav (@yoavgel) from Whisky Gospel.

This is outstanding, not my birth year so i'm only a little bit jealous of those who are 1978ers, but this is fabulous and one of the best whiskies i've had in a long time, subtle ex bourbon characteristics work in this really well for me.

if you're a 1978'er or love great whisky get this from The Whisky Exchange
