N: Big ripe fruit, a little figgy. P: Oily, full, sweet, and enjoyable but somewhat one-dimensional. F: Oaky and very sweet. A good Glenrothes, not "over-ripe" as many of them are, but still a little too sweet for my taste.
Retaste: Got more of the over-ripe aspect on the second try, rated a C+. Glenrothes is just not my thing.
Nose has that thing going on that often turns me off to this distillery, a sort of sickly-sweet scent, with fart tinges. But the palate is tasty, a nice mix of spices and oranges, traces of clove and maybe cumin, quite sweet. Spice increases some in the finish. I like it.
The typical signature citrus is there but this malt manages to be mellower of some of the harsher flavors I sometimes get from Glenrothes (no solvent). Tad sweet. This was #10 for the night so more details would be pointless. I definitely was surpised I liked this though.
