A much awaited release from the Soleo collection, named for the sun-drying process used by Spanish sherry producers. On tight allocation in Australia, maturation includes a high proportion of first fill sherry casks. Beautifully packaged in a timber presentation case.
Other reviews... The oldest in the quintet of expressions in the Glenrothes Soleo Collection, this was matured predominantly in first-fill sherry casks. The nose offers pineapple, mango, malt, and nutmeg. Richly sherried on the muscular palate, with caramel, citrus fruits, licorice, and wood tannins. The finish is long and drying, with sherry-soaked old oak. Glenrothes at its very best. 93 points - whiskyadvocate.com, reviewed by: Gavin Smith (Fall 2019)
