Glenrothes - 1988 Bottled 2014Speyside Malt Whisky
Vintages from the 1970's and 1980's are increasingly hard to come by. The Vintage 1988 is of that rare breed. Never before bottled the Vintage has benefited from more than two decades maturing in a combination of Spanish and American oak; previously seasoned with both sherry and whisky. The combination gives the citrus notes a delicious cooked orange flavour and plenty of fruit as well which are evident on the nose and the palate.
Appearance: Copper gold, clear and bright.
Bouquet: Rich, spicy: ripe, dark, berry fruits.
Palate: Rich, full flavour: candied orange peel, fruit compote.
