Glenrothes 16 Years Old 1997 30.77 This is nuts! (57.7%, SMWS, Refill Sherry Butt, 775 Bottles, 2013)

Intense and sadly not all to my liking, I love sherried whisky and up until this one I would have said the more-sherried the better. This cask has gone over to the vinegary/oxidized dark-side and I’m not sure water redeemed it either. Without the acidity there was plenty of great old-sherried notes kicking around in here but it was a real fight trying to find them. Challenging sums it up! 78/100
