Glenrothes 12 Years Old Adelphi 70cl 65.4%
Drawn from a refill Oloroso sherry butt, this whisky has the vibrant colour of sandlewood with little bead – the latter normally associated with high-strength filling such as this.
NOSE: Walls chocolate ice-cream with vanilla sponge cake, milk chocolate digestives and fresh feijoas.
PALATE: salted caramel truffles, Black Forest Gateaux and a slightly meaty finish. The finish is long and leaves the tongue tingling.
