Review #328 – Glenrothes Sherry Cask Reserve

Whiskey Network Review #328 | /r/Scotch Review #139 – Glenrothes Sherry Reserve, 80pf | 40.0% ABV

I got this at fluke pricing a while back ($32) and thought…hm, why not. I’d like to preface this review saying that temptation shouldn’t always be entertained.

Age: NAS

ABV: 40% ABV | 80pf

Maturation: Some sherry finish of some sort.

Filtered: Probably

Natural Color: Probably not

Nose: Pear, apple, vanilla

Taste: Thin, sweet, young, heat, sherry, astringency, pears

Finish: Short, sweet pear and apple, mild sulfur

Overall: For $32 (the fluke price I got it at) it’s fine but it’s young, thin and a tad hot. I see it over $40 around here which is a waste. It’s simple, sweet and better served as a warm up or thoughtless dram rather than a dram to sit down and really think about. The bottle says to expect “spicy ginger, orange peel and sherry” but the first two are entirely absent.

Thanks for reading!
