The Glenrothes 1978
The Glenrothes // Speyside, Scotland
Bottled from a small selection of casks filled in 1978, this single malt was one of the last to be released from the Glenrothes vintage range, which is drawn from about 2% of the casks produced by the distillery. Despite its large production capacity, much of the juice from the Glenrothes ends up in blends such as the Famous Grouse or Cutty Sark. This malt was distilled March 11th, 1978 and bottled July 1st, 2008 at 43% ABV.
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.
