Glenrothes 36 Testing Note

I’m very familiar with The Glenrothes portfolio – in fact, 18-year-old expression is a major theme in my bar cart. But, honestly, what can you say about the 36-year-old? It’s a little hard to describe as interesting as a whiskey but I will definitely try.

Start with fragrance. As you might expect from The Glenrothes, your senses are first greeted with a fruitful character. Ripe peaches are quite present with hints of extra candied peel, sweet ginger, fresh nuts and rose oil. As you taste the whiskey, that fruity character continues – tropical fruit and orange zest are balanced against a fine vanilla sweet, light oak and mild spice. The finish is very sweet because the fruit notes are durable and have a mild aroma.

One very interesting thing to note – at least from my palate – though The Glenrothes 36 volume is 41.4% alcohol (ABV), with the initial scent as well as its bite and snap during the first sip suggesting higher, almost overproof, strength. I had to take the bottle twice to make sure we weren’t actually drinking some overproof stuff. Far from the experience and enjoyment, this sensation invited me to taste the whiskey in my mouth, like the expression of a barrel of energy.
