Glenrothes 43yo 1973 (70cl, 41.8%)
If you would have though that maintaining a series called the Cask Strength Collection Rare Reserve would have been difficult... I gotta say that Signatory aren't really any showing signs of that being the case. Take this bottling here for example; distilled on the 30th September 1973 at Glenrothes Distillery, this handsome rascal spent 43 years maturing in a hogshead (11099) before it was charged at a cask strength 41.8% ABV on the 1st February 2017. It's part of a limited outturn of just 149 individually numbered decanter bottles, and there's no added colour. This will make for an impressive dram, from a very impressive range.
Nose: An aromatic fusion of heather, Scotch tablet, dry barley and smoked almonds, with a tinge of cinnamon and allspice.
Palate: Soft vanilla leads into red velvet cake, rich honey, toasted walnuts and stone fruits. Smoky and delicate peppery spice takes the backdrop.
Finish: Very subtle hints of chilli chocolate, earthy tobacco and stewed fruits.
