Glenrothes 20 yo (1996/2016), Cask Owners Selection, 53,5%

Review #441
This is bottled for Skt. Klemens Malt by Whiskybroker. It has cask number 6 and only 300 bottles were made. This is bottle #46. Very sweet in the smell. Vanilla, marzipan and honey, but surprisingly little oak influence. Very light and sweet in general.

The taste is like a candy store. So much sweetness. Again the vanilla, marzipan and honey, but some dessert like pears and light citrus mixes in as well. The finish is long and warm. The sugars stays and some malt and grass/hay appears.

A great whisky at a great price! This would go perfect with a dessert or a coffee after a meal. After some minutes in the glass or with some water, the overall sweetness will tone down a bit, letting the other flavours through. I will give this 86/100 (21/22/22/21).
