Matured in sherry casks, the majority of which were first-fill, this is a sweet and spicy whisky with notes of vanilla, fresh ginger and pear.

Truly delicious! Has notes of vanilla, ginger, rose, orange and pear, as advertised. In addition, this new Soleo Collection release has an amazingly deep taste - and aroma - of soft, chewy caramel. The kind of soft, chewy, homemade, melts-in-your-mouth individually wrapped caramel sold occasionally at speciality stores. This was my first Glenrothes, and it’s a knock-out. Not a sherry-bomb, but rather the perfect amount of sweetness, with far more depth than I expected based on color alone (as compared to some of the other 18-year old whiskies I’ve imbibed over the years). This one is a keeper and will now occupy the sacred top-shelf area of my cupboard along with three or four other elderly (18-25 year) Scottish cousins. Also, hats off to the great folks at Whisky Exchange, whose shipments always arrive quickly and in perfect condition to my home In Hillsboro, Oregon (USA).
