Another fantastic entry into the Single Malts of Scotland impressive ‘A Marriage of Casks’ series. This is a marriage of two casks from Glenrothes distillery, from vintages that range from 1989 and 1990, they include a single hogshead cask and sherry butt. The nose is full of jammy notes and leather. Blackcurrants, juicy raisins and sticky dates sit alongside maraschino cherries, malt loaf and fruity dark chocolate. Intensely rich palate, everything you want from a heavy Glenrothes. Stewed plums are dusted with charcoal, sweet and sour cherries, molasses and soft oak spice. Ginger cake and chocolate-covered crystallised ginger provide a backbone of sweetness countered by rich riverbank earth. The finish is that of polished oak, sticky jam and allspice mixed with brown sugar.
