Glenrothes 11 Year Old "Discovery" Single Malt Scotch Whisky by Gordon & Macphail
43% ABV, 750 ml, "Discovery", Sherry Cask
An 11-year-old Glenrothes single malt, matured in sherry casks and bottled by Gordon & MacPhail as part of its Discovery series.
Nose: Zesty Seville orange aromas appear with plenty of cinnamon and clove spice. Stewed fruits - red berries, plum, and cherries are complemented by nuances of milk chocolate.
Taste: Creamy; followed by cracked black pepper, dark forest fruits with warming spice. Orange marmalade flavours come to the fore. Roasted walnut leads to toasted oak.
Finish: Long lasting with lingering chocolate and orange flavours.
The spirit of this single malt Scotch whisky was sourced from Glenrothes Distillery before Gordon and MacPhail matured it in its own casks for its new introductory range, Discovery. It was aged for a total of 11 years before being bottled at 43% ABV.
