Golden vintage…

The Glenrothes distillery was founded in 1879 by the burn of Rothes in Speyside. The distillery is interesting because it determines the maturity of their expressions by the vintage, not the age. This means they bottle vintages by year, rather than mixing expressions by several years. As a collector, this allows you to enjoy and appreciate each vintage for what it is, a moment captured forever in a bottle.

This Glenrothes is a 2001 vintage. So it’s really not a “blend,” right? I mean, it’s all awesome Glenrothes stuff, just from different vintages. So do call that “single-malt-blendish-thingy” or what? It doesn’t matter. Just pour a dram and forget the linguistics.

This incredible Whisky has golden straw tones, with a bouquet of lemon meringue pie, sandalwood. On the palate you’ll find oak, vanilla, and cream topped with grated nutmeg, followed by a heavenly finish
