Canmore Single Cask Glenrothes 10yo 46% ABV

Canmore Glenrothes 10yo

This Speyside was matured in an ex-bourbon hogshead NCF and an outrun of 470 bottles.


Appearance: Barely any colour at all, almost new make in appearance. A thin tide mark and semi-viscous film quickly form when swirled. Trails struggle to form and remain as long teardrops that stick to the glass, refusing to seep down the glass. After a time the film does morph into a more corrugated appearance, but barely.

Nose: Toffee, chocolate, subtle smoke, vanilla fudge and baking spices. This has a lovely nose, almost like a boozy chocolate Mars bar. Further, nosing reveals a more fruity element: Red berries and orchard fruits, mostly pear and plum.

Palate: A nice viscous mouthfeel and spice-forward first sip. The chocolate element is there too but dusted with a little white pepper and slight astringency. The baking spices, particularly cinnamon and nutmeg are consistent with the nose. A cereal, malty note appears after a while, Crunchy Nut Cornflakes spring to mind.

Finish: That malt note, along with the orchard fruits, honey and vanilla last for a medium to long time. The pepper note also lingers, but a more gentle black pepper now.

Overall: Another really pleasant and interesting whisky from Canmore. Plenty going on, full of very nice aromas and flavours to explore and an easy sipper too.
