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.

Tasting Notes

"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! "
