A rich 11-year-old Glenrothes matured in ex-sherry casks and released by independent bottler Gordon & MacPhail.
Nose: Zesty Seville orange aromas appear with plenty of cinnamon and clove spice. Stewed fruits - red berries, plum and cherries are complemented by nuances of milk chocolate.
Palate: Creamy; followed by cracked black pepper, dark forest fruits with warming spice. Orange marmalade flavours come to the fore. Roasted walnut leads to toasted oak.
Finish: Long lasting with lingering chocolate and orange flavours.
This expression is part of Gordon & MacPhail's Discovery series, which showcases classic whisky styles under the sherry cask, bourbon cask and smoky banners. Gordon & MacPhail is one of Scotland's oldest and most respected independent bottlers and have one of the broadest and deepest collections of maturing Scotch whisky.
