Cadenhead, Small Batch Glenrothes 2009 65.3% 700ml
Cadenhead Small Batch
Glenrothes 2009 (9YO)
Cadenhead ‘Small Batch’ are always 2-3 cask bottlings – bottled at cask strength. The Glenrothes distillery specialises in Sherry-matured whiskies. The term ‘sherry-bomb’ is used extensively when describing Glenrothes distillery releases. This Cadenehead’s Glenrothes 2009 expression is a very interesting whisky in that it is an ex-Bourbon cask aged Glenrothes. So, this is a rare opportunity to taste a ‘what if’. What if Glenrothes aged in Bourbon casks?

Nose: Vanilla, golden syrup and hints of nougat and chocolate sprinkles. Feint green tea notes with butterscotch.

Finish: Tingling spices give way to warm toffee sauce and cranberries.
