Apperance: deep mahogany
Bouquet: ethereal, minty dark chocolate
Palate: rich ethereal cardamon
Finish: long creme broule finish
Tasting Notes Royal Miles:
Nose: Sherry, and lots of it. Malt vinegar and flat coke. Molasses, prunes and Camp coffee essence. Root beer, gingerbread, dark rum and licquorice. We could go on and on...
Taste: Dark rum, treacle, banana cake, and woody finish with spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves).
Overall: Yes this is a whisky matured in a sherry cask, but at the same time it somehow hasn't become dominant or over-tannic. A big scorer.
I had a Dram last year on Interwhisky in Frankfurt. It is an unbelievable good Whisky. In my opinion a little bit too expensive. A prize between 200 - 250 Euro are accepteable.
Anyone have any ideas about whether to drink or hold ? Many thanks in advance.
All three Single Cask a very familar and close together in Taste, but different. For me the Best one is the 13470, followed by 13458 and last but not least the 3808.
To hold this excellent Whisky is a sin. Drink and enjoy
Glenrothes79 if you really are into whisky I'd hang on to it and drink at some stage... just wait for that special time crack it open and enjoy... However there are always other uses for an expensive bottle ... if you want to maximise your whisky sell it and buy a selection of mid priced bottles and have a nice choice for yourself.
Your choice but I know I'd want to drink it at some stage as Glenrothes are wonderful drams
