Another Glenrothes that I really like, and again in the 18-25 age group. I feel some of the younger and official bottlings sadly didn’t really impress me enough to be memorable. This bourbon barrel vatting from Cadenhead’s however has a great depth of woody sugar but a really fresh fruit salad character with intensity and complexity within both those flavours. Good stuff! 89/100
