Review #80 - Glenrothes 20 Cadenheads 1997 Bounty Hunter 56%
First, apologies for the terrible picture. I guess I was just overwhelmed by how amazing this was?
Nose: Roasted nuts, marzipan, peanuts, red plums, dark chocolate, leather. Just a hint of something like old mint.
Palate: Caramel, black pepper, sour cherry, cacao nibs, dark chocolate. Currants, sultanas, ginger and figs. Toffee, clotted cream.
Finish: Really long. Spicy pepper, then sweet. Caramel, burnt sugar, chocolate covered cherries, a hint of oak. Fading into pipe tobacco and leather.
Good lord, this is a delicious whisky.
Would I buy this: Yes. Under $200 USD, yes.
Would I order this in a bar: Absolutely.
Would I drink this if someone gave me a glass: Thank you, may I have another if it's not too dear?
Verdict: Delicious. Big thumbs up.
