WHAT: Glenrothes Select Reserve Single Malt Scotch Rating: NNN
WHERE: Speyside, Scotland
WHY: Single malts or even just plain old everyday blended Scotches may tend toward sternness and for some can be a difficult taste to acquire. This is a very approachable style – sweet and creamy with just a touch of whisky burn. It evokes tipsy old cuddly teddy bears. Actually, that only started to happen after the fourth glass.
PRICE: 750 ml/$59.45
