Customer Rating
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.

    This was a game changer for me. I couldn't get past the peat taste in scotch until I tried this. Amazing...

    I have drunk over 40 different malt whiskies and countless grain whiskies. I can honestly say that this is the worst I have EVER tasted. Save your money.

    Very easy drinking. You can taste all the subtle flavours and relish them. Leaves a great vanilla and orange trace. Enjoyed very much with company.

    This is quite excellent. A new one for me. There will most definitely be another purchase.

    I found this a below average quality whisky for this price. A little touch of sulphur and young. Take a look at Glenfarclas or Glendronach for better quality for the same price

    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.

    Just finished my Christmas gift. Finest bottle of whisky I have ever sampled (and there have been a few!)

  • 11 January 2014

    gifted one bottle by my son on my 74th birthday .wish it had been 30 years earlier !!! much enjoyed.

    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

  • 12 December 2012

    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!
