The Glenrothes John Ramsay.John Ramsay created this as his final release before retiring as the master blender for The Glenrothes, using casks from 1977, 1978, 1979, 1982, 1985, 1986, and 1987. It’s a meditative, complex, and amazing whisky, with a nose that mixes honey, vanilla, brown sugar, molasses, hazelnut, nutmeg, and gorse bushes. The taste has a great, thick nectar-like mouthfeel with dried orange peel, licorice, a touch of cinnamon, rose petals, floral notes, and vanilla. The finish has notes of brandied orange peel, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. Truly an amazing dram!
