The Glenrothes 25 year old 1990 Oloroso Finish

Wilson & Morgan - Barrel Selection
8.6 (1)
Geproefd op:
9-7-2019
Geur:
Sweet, a lot of sherry, dried fruits (apricots, figs, raisins), caramel, dark berries jam, pekan nuts, buckwheat honey notes, cloves and nutmeg, light oak on the background. Water amplifies caramel and honey, opens up flowery notes.
Smaak:
Sweet, spicy (peppers and ginger), sour orchard berries, caramel and stewed fruits, bitterish and drying oak
Afdronk:
Medium-long, dry, somewhat nutty and malty, fading oaky bitterness
Conclusie:
The strongest side of this expression is its nose. Beautiful strong sherriness with spicy and nutty motives. However, the taste and aftertaste are shifted to the oaky side. Noticeable bitterness and dryness are not to my liking at all. Also despite 25 years of age this whisky lacks complexity. It was interesting to taste a sample but I wouldn’t buy the full bottle.
Cijfer:
8.6
