The Glenrothes 1998
The Glenrothes // Speyside, Scotland
The Vintage Series bottlings from The Glenrothes distillery demonstrate just how differently the wood can interact with the spirit and highlights the best of their inventory. Bottled in 2009, this vintage whisky is therefore 11 years old; very few whiskies are vintage dated. The whiskies are aged in a blend of ex-bourbon and ex-sherry barrels.
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.
Cask Typeex-Bourbon, ex-Oloroso Sherry
"This whisky has lots of juicy pear fruits topped with homemade vanilla whipped cream. Throw some coconut shavings on top and we have a winner! "
