This 2nd edition of the Glenrothes 1992 Vintage Single Malt is aged 10 years longer than the original release bottled in 2004. These are the very same casks chosen for the 1st release, left aside to mature longer in both refill sherry and ex-bourbon barrels, making it the first vintage of the Glenrothes to be matured entirely in refill casks. It should be noted that the whisky was originally produced by Malt Master John Ramsay and the casks for this edition bottled by his successor, Gordon Motion. It is also non-chill filtered.

Tasting Notes

"As Brand Director Ronnie Cox is quoted as saying, this is a very "come hither" whisky! The flavors are bold and assertive, yet fan out elegantly over the palate. It has notes of orange zest, pear, brown sugar, creme brulée, toffee and walnuts. The creamy richness is balanced out with a soft spice in the finish. A drop or two of water balances that out even further."
