There's no mistaking the fact that this single malt has been aged in sherry casks. A deep garnet colour, it exudes rich notes of dried fruits, coffee, spices and toffee. On the palate those characteristics are balanced by soft fruit, but this remains a stonking dram with a dense sherry core. This limited-edition bottling has been created exclusively for us by independent German bottlers The Whisky Agency.

    Great whisky, one of the highlights of the year so far. Already seen it on sale for ?400 on the whisky barrel site no doubt someone will buy it but for me whisky has always been for drinking and enjoying not making money.

    Whisky-Connaisseur Dr. Heinz Weinberger,

    Nose: Oh yes, there's no doubt this is from a sherry cask! Bold, rich and intense sherry backbone with dried fruits, maraschino cherries, prunes, dates, and raisins. Sweet with brown sugar, liquorice, and marzipan, pleasantly mixed with dark chocolate, coffee and tender notes of leather in the back. A big nose! Palate: The palate delivers what the nose promises. Rich, sweet and creamy, even sticky notes of sherry, dark ripe fruits, cherries, raisins, and prunes. This is complemented by a nicely warming spiciness of cinnamon, cardamom, oak and subtle black pepper. Stays sweet with Demerara sugar and rum flavours. Subtle chocolate coated coffee beans and a hint of balsamic vinegar towards the finish. Finish: The finish is pleasantly long and warming. Now more spicy notes arrive with leather, tobacco leaves and cigar box, followed by dry oak, burnt caramel, and coffee beans. Happily, the delicate sweetness returns with a wee creamy touch of dark fruit jam on the tail. Comments: Very lush and bold sherry cask matured Glenrothes! Quite an intense, complex sherried dram, packed full of creamy sweetness and rum soaked fruits. A rich and deep character with a lovely nose and a powerful palate. Multi-layered and nicely balanced with loads of dark fruits, warm spices and a delicate mix of chocolate and tobacco flavours. A grown-up whisky which I prefer to drink neat but which can tolerate a few drops of water, too.
