The Glenrothes 50 Year Old. Image courtesy The Glenrothes/Edrington.This is the oldest Glenrothes single malt ever released, and was distilled in 1968 with only 50 bottles available worldwide. The nose has a good balance of wood and fruitiness with hints of cedar, peaches, and dried flowers. The taste starts off fruity-sweet at first, followed by spices that explode on the palate with notes of cardamom and clove complemented by oak tannins and hints of garden herbs and vanilla. The finish is long and subtle with an excellent balance of lingering spices and dried fruits. Outstanding! (December, 2020)
