The Whisky Jury - Glenrothes 1997

26yo / 55.0%

Region: Speyside
Cask: Refill hogshead

Scoring: 89/100

Very funny label, extremely well done if you ask me. Please do Edvard Munch's The Scream next time (perhaps with an ex-refill- STR-Laphroaig-finish?)

Colour: straw.

Nose: good fun indeed, with a lot of parsley and cress at first, then salty liquorice and Cuban cigars, then coriander, mint and grapefruit. In other words, it is an unusually potent, zestier Glenrothes. With water: perfect muddy porridge, sprinkled with lemon juice and… whisky indeed. Perfect breakfast.

Mouth (neat): grapefruit indeed, lemons, elderflower liqueur and the spritz they're making thereof (St Germain over Aperol!) I wouldn't have said Glenrothes, I'd have said Highland Park. Could we talk to the warehouse manager? (of 1997). With water: same feelings. Excellent, but do not drown it.

Finish: long, tight, lemony, yet fat, fermentary, waxy, slightly smoky… Seriously, HP.

Comments: best of show this far.
