My friend has to quit drinking, so i got a lot of nice scotch including a sample of the 1998 vintage glenrothes unopened. Nose: A lot of wood, banana, vanilla, citrus Palate:Light wood,banana, vanilla, citrus, spice Finish: Banana's, citrus, vanilla, wood

all things considered this is excellent, feels a bit straight forward but to me that is not a fault in whisky. I would rather have a hot straight foreword scotch then one that is subdued and complex ( I am looking at you Macallan 12). I recommend this to newbies and veterans alike.

Good to know that you are enjoying Glenrothes 1998 - wish I had been gifted my bottle. I find this to be very ordinary whisky.

It is ordinary, but it is not bad. Sometimes a complex dram is what is needed, but in my opinion it is better to have a less complex palate if you have enjoyable flavors.

I find Macallan 12 to be quite the let down, but aberlour 10 is better in my opinion, each person has what they enjoy.

I too was initially disappointed with Macallan 12, but I do enjoy it: I was perhaps expecting too much, as I may have from the Glenrothes 1998. The GlenR 1998 is 'on the shelf' next to Cardhu and Jura Superstition. For a simple dram I go to Macallan CS...currently having a Corryvreckan, that's a long ways off from simple.
