This is another pleasant but one dimensional dram from Glenrothes. This particular 1991 vintage was bottled in 2008.

The nose is soft and well rounded with the familiar vanilla and citrus overtones. However, this one is a touch salty with a hint of berries. Quite nice actually.

The wood varnish and oaky palate lets me down, though. And the honey and vanilla don’t really help.

The finish is long and oaky with with cloves and a bourbon-y banana after taste.

So much mediocrity.
