Glenrothes 27 Year Old Reviews
Tasting notes from Billy Abbott (The Whisky Exchange)
Rich orchard fruit compote, sprinkled with spice and stewed down to leave gentle acidity. Pear drops and real pears sit against both freshly sliced and dried apples, all on a bed of spicy baked apple.
It starts with a burst of sugary sweetness and a layer of orchard fruit. Spice builds around the sides, with buttered pastry and soft char through the middle. Sultanas and peach rise through the centre before the darker, spicy notes roll in.
Sweet and biscuity with plump and singed raisins. Sweetness lingers, balanced by soft charcoal notes.
