Nose
Vanilla, buttercream, marzipan. A bit sharp, subduing the possible fruit. Some oak, but lightly so.
Taste
Sweeter than I expected. The buttery, vanilla flavor is still there. I’m quite enjoying this. It’s mouth watering. A bit drying to the end, but the marzipan or even licorice adds a sharp-ish note, breaking the heavy sweetness.
Finish
Medium length. The same flavors are still around. I love the thickness of this, the buttery texture. Oak and malt, vanilla and spice, butter and marzipan, they all last till the end.
Overall
More impressive than I remember it from last time. But this is a quality malt with some unique, delicious flavors. Can’t really fault it much. The best Glenrothes I’ve tasted so far.
