.the glenrothes – 8yo – g&m

From the MacPhail’s Collection of Gordon & MacPhail’s the Wood makes the Whisky programme, a nice, creamy and fruity Glenrothes.

43% abv, €35, single malt

Nose: sweet, vanilla, toffee, fruity, ripe bananas, warm pineapple juice, a hint of sulphur
Palate: sweet, toffee, fruity, sweet berries, warm cherries, nuts, pecans
Finish: sweet, rather short, fruity, ripe pineapples
Mark: +++/++ 
Conclusion: Quite a lot of body for an eight year old. Always that sulphur notes in the Glenrothes though…
