Every single malt created is vintage. This does not mean only aged, but a whiskey distilled from a certain year that reaches its peak of maturity, flavor and character. At that point, they have a choice to make: either bottle these rare and finite expressions as Single Vintages, or marry them in perfect harmony to create one of the exquisite Reserves.
Glenrothes Bourbon Cask Reserve (formerly known as Alba Reserve) is made exclusively from whiskey that has matured in old bourbon barrels. Load of classic notes of vanilla and honey all the time. The whiskey is Kosher certified.
Nose: Freshly baked bread with butter, almonds and coconut, a little white chocolate.
Palate: White pepper, cinnamon, a little blackberry. Whole vanilla pods with honey.
Finish: Carbonized bourbon oak and orange oil.
