The Glenrothes traditionally bottle single malts from specific vintages, so this no-age-statement example raised a few eyebrows when it first appeared. However, the only thing recent batches have raised is the bar - this is tremendous easy-drinking Speyside.
Bouquet: American oak, vanilla and coconut, hint of plums
Palate: Full malty flavour, medium sweet, vanilla and orange zest
Finish: Long and slightly spicy

a bit rough not in the same league as the glenrothes vintage, one to share not to saviour and enjoy by yourself

Superb for my palate. At 7pm I have my first dram and it is superb.

Got a bottle for my 65th birthday and have had two glasses so far, reminds me of my favourite whisky which is Glenturret. Could not fault it at all and would certainly recommend to whisky lovers everywhere.

I have finished two (2) bottles of this single malt, months apart. I found it to be an excellent value - much more than I had expected for the price.

The ultimate entry-level Single Malt Scotch for beginners as well as those who want to take a break from other types of whisky/whiskey (American, Bourbon, Irish, Canadian and so forth) and be introduced to the world of Single Malt Scotch. A very approachable, easily drinkable, soft and elegant, mostly well-mannered dram despite being a bit young. Round and oily, no rough edges, astonishing entry-level dram for the price!

A good single malt

This single malt is the one that first attracted me to whisky and remains my favourite.
I have noticed it has appeared in a certain national supermarket , but not as competitively priced as this one!

I got a bottle of this as a present for my 60th this year and must say that it is one of the nicest I have ever tasted, think I will be ordering another one soon, would highly recommend.

One of my favorite Speysides, for sure. A little spicy, vanilla and honey flavors pull through well, as well as heather and other interesting notes. The nose is a bit briney. Wonderful complexity and great value. I agree with some that the flavor profile is a bit chaotic, but that's part of what I really like about this whisky. Truly unique, which is welcome as many Speysides are a bit too similar.

Received this as a gift a couple days ago and was absolutely floored by it. This is a beautiful whisky. Clean and smooth. My new favorite Speyside...

bitterness!!?? no cant detect any of that the guy must have a loose filling or something. classic speysider v easy to drink.

I enjoy this because it is multi-dimensional. The flavor changes with each passing minute. From the moment I sip it initially neat, to a half hour later. It almost adds maturity to the scotch. Love it.

Just got this for my birthday from my daughter. Thoroughly enjoyable whiskey. Not clear as to ageing, there's no indication of this and perhaps it's a little fresh, certainly is a little lively even at 80 proof. A good addition though and worth sharing with friends and family.

no bitterness and very little spice, rather smooth, for Speysides my favourite is still Tamnavulin or Macallan...can't get enough of the aroma however, it is outstanding. I spent more time taking it in than sipping it.
