The Glenrothes Bourbon Cask Reserve Single Malt Whisky is a Speyside single malt matured in ex-bourbon casks, resulting in a smooth and mellow spirit with notes of vanilla, coconut, and white peach.

Description

Nose

Primary Notes: The initial aroma is fresh and inviting, dominated by the influence of American oak. Expect prominent scents of vanilla bean, often described as sweet and creamy, and toasted coconut, adding a touch of tropical character.

Secondary Notes: Hints of delicate floral notes like lilac or lavender might emerge, adding a touch of elegance. Some enthusiasts may also detect a subtle hint of spice, like cinnamon or ginger, adding complexity.

Palate

Body: The whisky has a medium body, feeling smooth and mellow on the tongue.

Flavor Profile: The initial taste builds on the aromas, with a creamy sweetness of vanilla custard or crème brûlée. Fruity notes, particularly white peach or other orchard fruits, add a refreshing counterpoint. A touch of chamomile or honey might linger in the background, offering a subtle floral note.

Texture: The texture is known for its waxiness or a slight “beeswax” quality, which some find interesting and contributes to the smooth, luxurious mouthfeel.

Finish

Length: The finish is medium-length, meaning the flavors linger pleasantly on the tongue for a moderate amount of time after swallowing.

Character: The aftertaste remains sweet, with lingering notes of vanilla and perhaps a hint of spice or oak.
