Oh, that nasty young Glenrothes nose of rotten vegetables.  Tastes the same.  Eck.

Nose is Glenrothesy.  I am worried.  There's that characteristic tinge of farts that, with Glenrothes, I find often ends up tasting like farts (Note: descriptors like these are supposedly unprofessional, but I'm sorry, it smells like a fruity fart, and this ain't my profession anyway).  Okay, time for a sip... YAY!!!  I just found a great, young Glenrothes that I actually like!  It's sweet and makes me feel good, with light spice, apricots and various other dried fruits, citrus and oranges.  Finish is lengthy, tasty, and stays bright.  What was initially farty in the nose now works as part of the experience.  The best young Glenrothes I've had to date.  I actually want a bottle.
