Vanilla on both the nose and the palate. There is some spice in the body but it's also very smooth.

Pocked up a bottle of the 1991 vintage yesterday, it's a lovely dram. I'm interested to explore the Glenrothes range a bit more...

I bought a bottle of this last week. I'll post a full review soon but early impressions are pretty good. Very enjoyable little dram.

Had a couple of drams last nite. It's growing on me. Seemed a little light at first, but I'm not used to Speysides.

I've heard mixed things, but I guess that's what you get when you buy a whisky that is done in yearly batches, if each batch is different, then naturally people are going to prefer some batches over others.

@jdcook worth pointing out that the select reserve has no age statement or year declaration. They do release some yearly whiskies but this I don't think this is one of them. I reckon they carefully marry it to create consistency. I'd heard people describe this as sweet and there is certainly a sweetness but for me the peppery, spicy notes really balance that out. I think its actually a really nice summer dram. It far exceeded my expectations.
