Glenrothes 1989

Glenrothes 1989Glenrothes 1989, 43% ABV, Speyside single malt.

This distillery designates it’s single malts by vintage, rather than age.  This particular bottling of Glenrothes 1989 was aged 11 years, released in 2002.

Light on the nose, with faint aromas of sweet molasses and fruit.  On the palate, spicy notes with sherry, transforming to liquorice.  The finish is smooth and moderate.

A solid whisky, I would think to be more for the tastes of those who seek sweeter, less agressive, drams.   Possibly a nice after dinner aperitif.
