Tasting Notes by MrAnon12345

This is a great bottle -- arguably much better than, say, the Macallan 18, at a much more reasonable price.

A very smooth and rich scotch, with a nice sweetness, coming I think, from sherry casking. No over-prominent notes; neither oak, nor peat, nor sweet. A wonderfully rounded flavor.

Highly, highly recommended.

Have done side by side with the 85 and Glenlivet archive 21 year and the Macallan fine oak 17. Glenrothes was my favorite or the three. Great whisky, I was very happy with the purchase.
