Glenrothes 1990 23 Year Old (SMWS 30.81 – A Baker’s Delight)
Cask Type: Refill ex-Bourbon Hogshead
Nose: Biscotti, powdered sugar, apple, orange, pastry, dried apricot, floral, peach, vanilla custard, herbal.
Palate: Dried apricot, peach, butterscotch, nuts, oak, perfume, melon, grape, spice.
Finish: Long finish, malt, melon, oak, mineral
The nose is very interesting to kick off, nutty, biscotti character, with loads of fruits to back it up. Sweet fruity notes on the palate, with a kick of spice. With a long, malty finish, and a kick of oaky minerality in the end. Better than my previous Glenrothes experience, which have been the OB watery offerings.
