Private Collection 1974 from Glenrothes Distillery
Whiskies from Glenrothes are known for taking their time to open up in the glass. Our Private Collection 1974 from Glenrothes Distillery is no different; a complex blend of Sherry-soaked fruitcake aromas revealing hints of chocolate on the palate and then charred oak on the finish.
Complex; aromas of sherry soaked fruitcake filled with stewed sultanas mingle with sticky medjool dates. Dark chocolate and citrus peel notes develop; a gentle woodiness with a delicate herbal edge comes to the fore.
Elegant, smooth, and sweet; subtle cinnamon and nutmeg flavours balance the mature oak and sherry influences. Notes of fruit and nut chocolate, toasted walnut, and hints of raisin emerge and evolve into zesty citrus. Salted toffee develops towards the end.
A modest, medium sweet finish fades; hints of charred oak and chocolate remain.
