Scotch Whisky / Speyside

Scotch Review: Glenrothe 1991

Got to try an a good scotch tonight at Occidental. They have a great list of scotches, whiskeys and bourbons along with a nice wine and beer list. The Glenrothe 1991 is a light amber colored scotch with a nose typical of Speyside single malts.

A soft entry entices the palate with nuts, heather and very soft caramel that opens up as the whiskey aerates. More pronounced caramel flavors round out the smooth whiskey with a medium to fuller finish.

A few drops of water helped smooth out the peaty flavors on the back of the palate. I enjoyed this scotch with a Padron 7000.

Retail runs around $80 for a 750 ml bottle. I’d probably pair this better with a more oily cigar like Tatuaje or the Torano 1959 Exodus in the future.
