Glenrothes 1975 Vintage Review

Glenrothes 19752015 is a big year for me personally as it is my 40th in May, as such I will be posting a number of 1975 vintages or 40 year old whiskies this year, starting with this Back Glenrothes 1975.

This is a fabulous aged dram which has retained all that Glenrothes sweetness i know and love withut having too much of influence from the woodwhich can happen with drams of this age.

This is a fabulously drinkable dram, scarily so as i could easily see myself drinking way too much of this of a night. I really enjoyed this dram and it makes a great start to the series celebrating my 40th.

Available to busy from all good whisky specialists like The Whisky Exchange

Sweet and gentle fresh fruit salad and lots of golden syrup and creamy buttery sweet biscuits
