GLENROTHES-GLENLIVET 2009 9 YEARS OLD 65.3%VOL – 70CL – SMALL BATCH 3 X HOGSHEADS
Only one bottle per order at this time
One of the highest ABV’s we have had since the 1990’s, the high ABV is not a barrier to the superb taste profile of this single malt.
NOSE: Vanilla, golden syrup and hints of nougat and chocolate sprinkles. Faint green tea notes with butterscotch.
PALATE: Lemon drizzle cake, touches of white pepper, freshly mown grass, autumnal forests with blackberries and raisin butter.
FINISH: Tingling spices give way to warm toffee sauce and cranberries.
A great dram on its own or with a dash of water or in a cocktail due to its rich complexity. (LTP) A big hit on the palate even more then expected with the nose but so drinkable all the same.
Its a classic Speyside for sure and even better given this is a Glenrothes, We did not expect that!! Very toffee and citrus at the same time might work with a drop of water but let this one open in the glass for say 10 -20 mins its fine to go it alone.
