The Glenrothes 12 Year
The Glenrothes // Speyside, Scotland
Introduced in September 2018, The Glenrothes 12 Year is a single malt from the brand's Soleo Collection. This collection ages entirely in sherry seasoned oak and is 100% natural color. Named for the process for drying grapes when making some sherry styles like Pedro Ximenez, this collection replaces all existing Glenrothes expressions. Bottled at 80 proof.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.

"The 12 year-old is a more floral and delicate proposition than its 10 year-old cousin. Gorse bushes and roses lead to white chocolate and peanuts on the nose with an earthy undertone. It's lighter on the tongue though and morphs into a dessert whisky with peaches, meringue, and vanilla riding that delightful Glenrothes Tootsie Roll taste."
