Member Ratings and Notes
N:  Fruity, with that typical over-ripe Glenrothes thing going on.  Thick and oily, but with a better flavor than the 1991.  Not bad.  
Nose of fresh horse urine with a sickly-sweet and vinegary palate that I do not like at all.  
I was given this bottle as a gift.  The gift-giver is no longer my friend....  Some of the worst swill I have ever had the unfortunate experience to try.  I would give it an F except that I hear that there are some (apparently already brain-damaged) individuals who enjoy this profile.  My dog has produced better smelling liquids.  Although I have little experience in tasting urine, I completely agree with Adam.    
Oh it's not really that bad.  It's not really that good, either.  If you were to search for notes you might notice honey and a bit of lemon.  Better than a bad blend.  Worse than a good blend.  Sounds and tastes like a C to me. 

N: Super-sweet, very estery. Floral, unripe fruits, light hint of citrus.


P: Dry and slightly astringent. Light mouthfeel, subtle vanilla and wood, fruity - vanilla and even a hint of cotton candy. 


F: Caramel. Watery. Creme brulee; slight malt and toastiness, bourbon influence.


Dullsville, population: Glenrothes.
