First of all, I'm admittedly not a huge Glenrothes fan. Something about their house style (newer bottlings in particular) often strikes me the wrong way. So I go into this a bit prejudiced, as this tasting was anything but blind.

 

The nose hits me as very Glenrothes-y, but in a way that I like it... honey, lighter sherry notes, citrusy.

 

Palate is great, honeyed and rich, and not too rich. Great interplay of sherry and big bright fruits, cider, background spices. Finish is a long fade where the spice picks up as expected.

 

Very drinkable and very good stuff.
