Glenrothes 1988, 43%

Price: $140.00 Issue: Spring 2012 Reviewer: Dave Broom

The hue is deep amber and the nose is equally resonant and rich. This is Glenrothes in its most muscular guise, so that while you have the normal layers of fruity complexity, there is an extra weight. Think of citrus peels, sticky dates, walnuts, and fruit leather. The palate is soft and rolling with light tannin. For me, it's at its best au naturel.
