Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Hard toffee. Peanut brittle. Fruitier (cherries?) when water is added.
Palate: Long development of sweet and nutty flavours. Nougat. Coconut ice.
Finish: Hard liquorice. Medicinal. Soothing.
Comment: An elegant and luxurious malt. Glenrothes. This is an elegant and luxurious interpretation of it.
8.3
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Ripe and deep with dried fruits: sultana, apricot then (with water) burnt wholemeal bread crust.
Palate: Smoky/sulphur. Burnt but with soft concentrated dried fruit. Like liquid pannetone.
Finish: A little short.
Comment: Good, but not as good as the distillery bottlings.
