Dec 8 – The Malt Whisky Co. – Glenrothes 8yo

Nose : Rich and nutty with dried fruits, pecan pie, fruit brandy & toasted walnuts – a gourmet nose for sure, I also pick up some notes of croissant crust, wherter’s Original, Rum & Raisins ice cream & tonka bean. Got a sweet tooth ? That’s something for you ! (Meaning, that’s something for me :D )

Palate : Thick, almost syrupy and complex enough.  still huge on the tonka bean and nutty flavours, also some notes of crème brulée, pecan nuts, wood spices & dark chocolate. Ok, I’m won over Glenrothes, keep on the good work ! :D

Finish : yummy yummy  yummy

Recommended Food Pairing : pecan pie
