I have been enjoying whisky for over 25 years, and figured it was about time I learned a lttle more about the intricacies and lexicon of tasting. What better place to learn more, as well as record and share my whisky experiences than!

    Spiced caramel and vanilla, sweet and spicy with some smoky notes on the nose. Smooth and soft with a zesty lingering finish. Full body, but not at all imposing. Spice, cinnamon with a pleasant caramel sweetness.

    Glenrothes Vintage 1995

    Glenrothes Vintage 1995, 43% abv

    Dry sod and iodine on the nose. Little presence on the tongue, which seems to say "hi" in the middle then offers a long, warm, dry, earthy and tingly finish at the back. A bit of water opens honey and herbal/floral on the nose and a fuller body and less dry on the tongue.
