Another rye courtesy of karloff.
I enjoy rye because it usually is a bit more fierce than bourbon. I loved this one because it was not. Go figure :-)
  • Nose
    88 88
    Lusciously tempting sweetness with that slightly bolder edge of rye providing the firmness.
    A little fruit and some very exclusive hard wood polish.
    Very well integrated alc.
  • Taste
    89 89
    It delivers on the nose.
    Sweet and savory. Mouth coating.
    It has the tell tail of rye, yet it's gentle, "posh" and a very easy sipper.
    Blood orange, sugared coffee.
  • Finish
    88 88
    It sits very well with a slow almost controlled fade.

Color is gold. It's not dark sherried as many of those old Glenrothes from the 50s. It's similar to the Cadenhead sister bottling 1957 22yo also in the brown dumpy bottle.
This one is a bit rougher and more smoky, has more old books but is little less fruity. Let's see if it will develop over time after opening the bottle. Still very good old style Glenrothes. Great!
  • Nose
    92 92
    Fruity, quince, apricot, apple, honeydew, little austere, hints of old books, whiffs of smoke, little meaty, hints of soy sauce - very good!
  • Taste
    92 92
    Little punchy, oily, creamy, subtle sweetness, little fruity, apple, little grapefruit, spices, more old books, little metallic, some OBE, little lemon zest, hints of smoke, little herbal - still very good
  • Finish
    91 91
    Medium long, warm, more spicy, zesty, herbal, smoky, probably even little peaty

Nicht übel. Benötigt relativ viel Zeit und hat dann noch mehr zu bieten.

Hier hätte dann doch noch ein Sherry Fass gut getan.
  • Nose
    89 89
    Ganz leichter aromatischet Rauch und viel helle säuerliche Früchtr in der ersten Nase. Der Rauch wirkt manchmal gut eingebunden und manchmal etwas aufgesetzt. Das Laphi Fass ist spürbar. Ansonsten schöne angenehm Fruchtige Ex-Bourbon Noten. Vanille und Toffee eher im Hintergrund.
    Mit der Zeit kommt ordentliche Würze durch.
    Mit viel Zeit dann noch etwas malzige und strohige Noten.

    Schon ziemich komplex!
  • Taste
    85 85
    Etwas einseitig auf der Würzig-Pfeffrigen Schiene. Frucht nicht mehr so intensiv und der Rauch ist kaum noch zu spüren.
  • Finish
    87 87
    Zuerst auch hier die volle Fasswürze mit Pfeffrigen Noten. Dann aber doch noch etwas helle Frucht gemischt mit trockenem Rauch.

Another virgin territory covered here.
This one as many other provided by karloff.
The type of bottle that is not available locally and that either passes under the radar or get low priority when ordering on-line. So getting the opportunity to sample them is really appreciated.
This was good, this is promising.
  • Nose
    83 83
    Light and delicate nose.
    Sweet with a little fruity zest and milk chocolate.
    Fresh apples being most forward.
    Obviously young but very rounded without any roughness or sharp edges.
    It would have been interesting to know what kind of red wine casks were used, because it smell more like sherry.
    46% you say? I need to taste it to make sure.
  • Taste
    86 86
    This got all the cylinders running right from the start.
    Pleasant oily mouthfeel.
    Sweet, fruity, spicy. All in right balanced amounts.
    The spices have a little peak making the alc noticeable, before relaxing into a more herbal feel.
  • Finish
    84 84
    Fairly long with nice development.
    Even with the flavours of the spice not that noticeable, it remains cheek warming.
    Sweet milk chocolate returns at the end.
