Well, we continue on our journey towards leaving here all the whisky reviews I've jotted down through the years. This particular one dates back to March 2015, nothing less!
Glenrothes was the first scotch I used as a present, specifically a Christmas gift to my dad when he was a drinker (now a teetotaler), so good memories when it comes to this coconut-shaped, idiosincratic bottle.
Review time: a pale straw-golden pour introduces us to a spicy nose: cardamom, sizzling cinnamon, vanilla, quinine, even jalapeño peppers and grapefruit. Interesting scent mixture.
Strong and firm first contact with the tongue. Pungent, structured midpalate. Rather bitterless finish of medium persistence (and that's a pity.) Even so, all in all, a good sip.
