Glenrothes 10 Year Old - The Soleo Collection Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky The Soleo Collection Matured only in sherry seasoned oak casks and bottled at natural colour. With a character of vanilla, shortbread and lemon peel. A delicate and more subtle style single malt.
Edition No.4 is a single malt drawn from a combination of European and American oak casks, presenting a zesty, vibrant and invigorating character, that brings to life the fore notes of rounded honey, sweet toffee and citrus fruits.
Slow to give of its secrets, with mere hints of a fruity richness and spicy complexity to come. A swirl of the glass releases enticing, clean vanilla notes and tropical fruit. Soon, fruits are dried (light fruit cake with flake almonds). Adding water brings out typical Speyside character, and makes the nose slightly more acidic.
Nose: Soft with a leather undertone. Quite savoury, with gravelly notes, beeswax polish, linseed oil, oak bark and moss. Palate: Quite dry, like the nose, but with some dark sugar sweetness. Spiced fruit cake and the leather from the nose are joined by a rich earthiness, coal dust and some green leafiness. Finish: Green oak, ashes and sweet waxed apples.
Nose: Toffee and butterscotch with hints of liquorice and green apple. Palate: The liquorice and green apple continue from the nose, joined by a maltiness, smoke and spicy cardamom and white pepper. Finish: Warming, with the fruit and spice slowly dissipating to leave a delightful malty smokiness.
