Starting with citrus and finishing with red berries, this whisky has a honey and nut feel throughout.
This is technically a blended single malt - a combination of ten vintages exclusively from Glenrothes, using whiskies that are said to some of the finest examples of their individual vintages.
The first release was made up of whiskies from 1989 (said to offer dried fruit and oak notes), 1992, 1997, 1998 (over a quarter of the vatting with plenty of vanilla), 2000, 2001, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 (bringing uplifting citrus elements).
The distillery says of itself :
“Our distillery is in the town of Rothes, in the heart of Speyside. We don’t have a visitors centre, in fact we don’t even have a road sign. It’s The Glenrothes whisky itself that puts us on the map”.
