Speyside, Highlands, SCOTLAND
$109. 99

ABV: 40%
Billed as the classic “house” Glenrothes style, aged only in Sherry casks, this is the second in the new 'Soleo' series devoted to sherry matured expression ranging from 10 to 25 years of age.

Tasting note: Showing more 'breed' compared to the entry level bottling, the 12 year old is also softer and more rounded, offering moderate weight and length. All of the dried fruit, dark chocolate and spice notes you’d expect from a sherried Glenrothes are present, with nothing in excess. It's the ultimate easy-drinking Speysider. 40% Alc./Vol.

Other reviews.... Light berry fruit notes, with resin, walnuts, and icing sugar on the nose. More confident berry notes on the palate, with a hint of cloves, then developing licorice, dark chocolate, and tangerine. The finish is spicy, with aniseed. 40% Alc./Vol.
