The Glenrothes Vintage 1988 Single Malt Speyside Whisky

The Glenrothes Vintage 1988 Single Malt Speyside Whisky


This whisky has matured from two decades in a combination of Spanish and American oak; previously seasoned with both sherry and whisky. The combination gives the citrus notes a delicious cooked orange flavour and plenty of fruit as well which are evident on the nose and the palate.

    Tasting Notes By Rob Allanson
    Nose: Very rich,bags of citrus peel,more steamed fruit pudding than Christmas cake. There is a creamy smoothness to it as well.
    Palate: Soft and easy going. Plenty of red and dark berries with a zip of orange and lemon peel too.
    Finish: Fruit compote and cream.
    Comment: A great addition to the Glenrothes vintages. Stands up well among its fellow bottlings.
    Score: 85/100
