The Glenrothes Whisky Maker’s Cut
The Glenrothes // Speyside, Scotland
Introduced in September 2018, The Glenrothes Whisky Maker’s Cut is a single malt from the brand's Soleo Collection. This collection ages entirely in sherry seasoned oak and is 100% natural color. This bottling, however, matured in first-fill sherry seasoned casks. Named for the process for drying grapes when making some sherry styles like Pedro Ximenez, this collection replaces all existing Glenrothes expressions. This single malt bears no age statement and is bottled at 48.8% 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.

"The Glenrothes Whisky Maker’s Cut is a Jekyll and Hyde whisky on the nose and mouth. To sniff, a tannic and woody base serves up cooked mushrooms, vanilla, and strawberries. On the palate it descends into a playground of rich sweetness. Buttery croissants, toffee, and goopy dulce de leche. A really fun contrast. "
