Nose: Pleasant and citrusy, a little better than a typical Rothes.
Palate: Somehow reminds me of an old professor's closet. I keep thinking of tweed. It's a bit bitter at first and doesn't mature until the finish. I kind of dig it and kind of don't. I like that it avoids the Rothes stink finish, I like the full flavor. But tweed jacket closet?
Worth a try. I can see this fitting some people's profile.
N: Orange rind, nectary, butter, hint of brown sugar. A fantastic nose for a Glenrothes (i.e. no rotten notes). P: Oily and sweet, kinda a straight forward bourbon cask affair. I think I under-use the descriptors vanilla and caramel, but those stand out here. F: The oiliness offsets the high abv yielding a satisfying burn, with sugars saying "I love you long time, baby".
