Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Very rich,bags of citrus peel,more steamed fruit pudding than Christmas cake. There is a creamy smoothness to it as well.
Palate: Soft and easy going. Plenty of red and dark berries with a zip of orange andlemon peel too.
Finish: Fruit compote and cream.
Comment: A great addition to the Glenrothes vintages. Stands up well among its fellow bottlings.
