Bought – Online Whisky Auction, 22nd December 2013
I must confess, I only bought this miniature bottle of Glenrothes at auction because a) the box has ‘Gordon’ on it and b) it was cheap (£1.25). I have a cousin called Gordon so I thought it would be nice to give him a whisky gift with his name on it (even though it’s designed to be for the surname ‘Gordon’). It was only when the bottle arrived that I did some research. I knew it was old because of having the ‘Glenlivet’ as part of the name but I discovered it’s a bottle from the 1980s. Getting 85/100 from a review on Whisky Fun was an added bonus. They finish by saying of this malt “a rather oomphy old young malt whisky”. I do like a bit of oomph from my dram!
