Glenrothes specializes in vintage-dated Scotch whiskies versus the multi-year blends that are the norm, so the flavours vary subtly depending on the vintage, like wine. The distillery also represents a marked contrast to the trendy, heavily peated whiskies of Islay. I get clear cereal grain from most of their whiskies, despite time spent in wood, and there’s dry oatmeal here along with notes of pear, honey, butterscotch, spice and saddle leather. The price above represents a $5 discount in Ontario till Jan. 6. $89.99 in Nfld.
