The Single Cask Glenrothes 1997 19 Years Old #T497 (58% abv)


Nose: Slight alcohol hints coupled with black pepper, red fruits, light sherry and cinnamon. Slightly meaty, with hints of worn leather and tobacco pouch.   Palate: Sweet, rich and rounded, with sherry traces, black pepper, oak and meaty hints combining well. Nutmeg and cinnamon develop over time. A big and bold mouthfeel.   Finish: Long and lingering on the finish, with the sweetness and wood spices in control alongside the oak and black pepper.


This expression is sold out worldwide.
