Tasting notes of SlàinteMhath:

10. Oct 2016
This Single Malt from the heart of Speyside is easy accessible, not very complex and comes without an age statement (NAS). The nose is characterized by toffee/caramel notes, citrus fruits and engaging hints of baked plums. However, the occasional spiritiness and rather intense brown sugar sweetness might be off-putting to some. On the palate, Glenrothes Select Reserve is mildly spicy and sweet, emphasizing on honey, vanilla cream and ripe fruits. The finish is short, clean and slightly dry. An average everyday dram that is comparable to better Blended Scotches.
