The Glenrothes Sherry Cask Reserve

I loved the smell of this whisky. I asked the server for something sweet and this is what he recommended. I had it neat. The glass was still warm (from drying) and that in turn warmed the whisky; it was nice.

The first sip tasted lovely, but the next sip was stronger than the first. I thought this might have been due to the glass/drink returning to room temperature.

Overall, I enjoyed the taste of this whisky. 7:17PM PT

Sherry Cask Reserve
There are many factors we consider in determining an expression worthy of bottling and sharing with you. Of course, we've always been proud of the fact that we have our sherry casks made to specification in Jerez, southern Spain even though it costs around five times as much as American ex-bourbon equivalents. Now, we can offer you the chance to sample, without distraction, the unique dried fruit and resinous character that underpins the sherry top notes for which these casks are famed.

Tasting Notes
Appearance: Burnished gold
Bouquet: Orange peel, fruit cake, vanilla, ginger bread, black cherries and pear drops
Palate: Spicy, ginger, oaky notes, crème brulee
Finish: Lingering spiciness with orange peel notes

With a delicious creamy texture that explodes on the palate, this burnished gold single malt delivers soft, spicy and fruity flavours - ginger, orange peel and sherry oak in perfect harmony. Sheer indulgence.
