Tasting Notes: The Glenrothes 1985 Vintage Scotch Whisky

The Glenrothes 1985 Vintage has a rich bouquet of dried fruits, vanilla and lots of cooked orange notes that evoke feelings of the fall. It’s very smooth and velvety on the palate, with flavors ranging from oaky honey and vanilla to white grapes. Its lengthy finish balances between mild sweetness and dry oak.
