A marriage of 10 vintages from 1989 to 2007, this is a very approachable introduction to Glenrothes' range. Creamy with notes of nuts and red fruit.

Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    Appearance: Brassy gold

    Bouquet: Unusually fragrant, soft in style, wafts of mature citrus and honeycomb accompanied with characteristic red fruits.

    Palate: Very soft silky/creamy mouth-feel. Red berry fruits swirl and dominate with time over the nebulous nuttiness.

    Finish: Mid to long citrus and honeyed vanilla and the faint reminder of 1st fill sherry casks.

    Me and a friend who is a Glenrothes fan are starting to make our way through the ageless range. This one has a bit more about it. Nose: Honey and cinnamon. Taste: slight sherry. Fruit cake. Vanilla. Finish: sherry and caramel. A lot smoother with water. For me this is an after dinner dram .

    Received as a gift from my son after my election to public office. It is an excellent sipping whiskey when drunk neat, smooth, fruity, mild spice, and long delicious finish.. I especially like the weight and mouth feel, but was disappointed when I had some in a slightly wet glass.One of my favorite whiskies.

    A smooth, mellow whisky and the perfect nightcap.

    Smooth as buttered silk, and eminently quaffable. Honey is the predominate taste, and the mouth-feel is rather creamy. It would be all too easy to over indulge on this naughty little persuader.

    Love this expression. Glenrothes Is always a cut above the rest and this is an amazing example of their scotch.

    Absolutely love it! I am, and have been for a long time, a scotch lover. This is the best scotch, in my humble opinion, that I've ever had the pleasure of drinking!

    Taste is too short and a bit floral, dissappointing for the money

    Really nice Speyside whisky! At the price, a really good value. Will buy again. Great value.

    Mediocre and a bit disappointing. I usually enjoy Glenrothes's offerings. Tastes like an oloroso sherry unfortunate trend over the last few years.

    Very soft and easy sipping scotch. I prefer the peat of Laphroaig. However, for an oak and woody flavor, this one takes the top for me so far. Quality and value.
