Whiskyfun by Serge

Glenrothes 1992/2004 (43%, OB) Colour: yellow gold. Nose: less fresh and playful, and more spirity. Caramel, oak, nuts, some sherry� Less complex than the older version. Gets flowery after a minute or two, and fruity as well (apple compote), but the whole is somewhat restrained. Some winey notes take control after a while. Mouth: quite a lot of sherry, but somewhat restrained. Much less complex and interesting than it�s older brother. Gets a little watery and fragmented, with some bitter orange on one side an some wood on the other side. Gets quite honeyed� Rather short finish, on honey and oak. Not bad, sure, but nothing special either. 80 points. (November 13, 2004)

Malt Advocate


The Glenrothes 1992 Vintage, 43% ABV,
A very fragrant, fruity whisky (orange, tangerine, plum, nectarine) with interwoven notes of honeyed malt, toasted oak, vanilla, and subtle anise. I love the creamy, mouth-coating texture of this whisky and its soothing finish. All the vintages of Glenrothes that have been released over the years are worthy of your hard-earned money, and this one is no exception. There�s not as much depth as some of the older, more mature expressions, but the lively youthfulness of this whisky makes up for it.

The Glenrothes 1992 bott 04 db (76) n17 t20 f19 b20. Just a hint of red liquorice on the finale it away from the malt. The nose is poor, though. 43%

The Glenrothes 1992 vintage is characterized by a medium golden appearance that is clear and bright. With a soft and fruity bouquet highlighted with flavors of ripe black plums and licorice and a soft citrus palate with notes of orange zest and sherry oak, the 1992 vintage has a spicy finish with a medium length.

Tasting Notes Royal Miles

Nose: Raisins, sultanas, plums, bananas and malty honey tones. Although sherried, still quite fresh.

Taste: Very soft, slightly tannic and dry. Dried apricots and bubblegum.

Overall: Flavoursome but still fresh.
