Glenrothes is universally acclaimed for its exceptional Speyside Malt whiskey. Only a small number of whiskeys are selected to obtain the exceptional quality required. Each vintage is, by definition, rare and finite. Each has its own personality. This edition includes 2 glasses to serve the pure malt perfectly.
The Glenrothes Sherry Cask Reserve was introduced to the Speyside distillery's centerline in 2014, and is definitely one for Sherry lovers, as this is the first Glenrothes single malt to be fully matured in first-filled Sherry barrels. Yum.
Nose: plump raisins, crystallized ginger and brittle cookies sprinkled with sugar. Crushed walnuts and oak appear later.
Palate: Flamed orange zest and cinnamon, with more ginger and spices from the barrel in front. This quickly turns into succulent sultanas and raisins, perhaps with a tiny trickle of earthy smoke.
Finish: Brown sugar, citrus peel and nutmeg last.
