A Perfect Measure sample of Glenrothes 18-year-old single malt. Matured in sherry casks this whisky is sweet and spicy with notes of vanilla, ginger and pears. Part of the Soleo Collection, this single malt was aged in sherry casks to reflect the process of air-drying grapes for use in making sherry.

    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).
