The Glenrothes ordinarily ages their whiskies in a blend of both ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks. This bottling is the exception; this whisky is aged exclusively in ex-bourbon casks. The Latin name for American white oak is Quercus Alba, hence the name. Incidentally, this whisky is certified Kosher.

Tasting Notes

"The aroma are unmistakably markers for the American wood aging with aromas of vanilla and coconut. Cinnamon and ginger are in attendance and there is a beeswax quality to the texture and taste of the whisky."
