Glenrothes 1997 24 years


The esteemed Thompson Brothers, renowned for their resounding debut in the realm of independent whisky, require no introduction. Their selections have consistently left us in awe.

Tonight, we delve into a 24-year-old Glenrothes, aged in second-fill casks and boasting a modest 48.9% ABV, a perfectly judicious choice for the discerning palate.

The bottler’s reputation remains unblemished with this opus, presenting us with a delightful gustatory complexity. The texture, oily and almost waxy, unveils patiently tinted notes of figs, almonds, and honey, transporting us to a Mediterranean shore. The marzipan gracefully indulges our senses in the finale, accompanied by a subtle, nostalgic hint of the whiskies of yesteryear.

Yet another triumph, some may assert, for the Thompson Brothers.
