Glenrothes / Claxtons

Glenrothes 1997 19yr (Claxtons) Review

Glenrothes 1997 19yr (Claxtons) Another single cask example from Claxtons, this time a heavy sherried whisky from Glenrothes.

If you're a regular reader you will know i have issues with heavily sherried drams but this was within my limits with lots of fruity notes along with rich raspberry.

A tasty dram that seems to now be sold out everywhere, yup my backlog and being busy at the day job has meant a lot of that, but keep looking out for more from this independent bottler.

Thanks to Claxton's Spirits for the official sample.

Tasting Notes & Details


There’s an Immediate fruity richness here which is followed by hints of coal then delicious vanilla infused cream before a hont of those American grape chews.


Again a seriously rich fruitiness with black cherry cake and a covering of 85% dark chocolate and rich fondant icing with a raspberry jam filling.


Lingering with toasted hazelnuts and walnuts.
