Speyside Spectacle with a Bourbon soul.

The tiny town of Rothes by the River Spey is home to four distilleries and has Scotch embedded in its DNA. One of those Whisky-making establishments is the Glenrothes Distillery (its name is literally "the valley of Rothes"), with history dating back to 1879. With ancient recipes and tradition by their side, they have been making award-winning Whiskies for decades.

One of their blockbusters is the Bourbon Cask Reserve, a certified Kosher expression aged in ex-Bourbon American oak casks. Made from Scottish barley and distilled in copper-pot stills, using the purest water of two nearby springs, this particular Single Malt is a breathtaking concoction that won two gold medals at the 2016 WSWA Tasting Competition. With abundant notes of coconut and vanilla, it's a perfect warm shelter from the mad rapid flow of modern life. Take it slow and neat.

Smooth and delightful. A wonderful alternative to MacCallan, being from the same area. Highly recommend this.
 
Darren
Darren,
Scotchy and bourbony. Both peat and sweet. Not bad, pretty good, not entirely sure why.
 
Brandon
Brandon,
Nice, affordable scotch. The nose is sweet with hints of fruit, bite is minimal, finish is mild to no burn and short in length. I would like to taste the fruit in the finish, but still not a bad sipper.

I love it I think it has sweet smooth taste.
 
John
John,
Mouthfeel seemed a little thin. Great aroma and I definitely picked up on some vanilla notes. I'd still choose Balvenie Double Barrel first, but i could end up buying this again sometime.
 
Brian

I prefer bourbon, but as Scotch goes this is a good sipping spirit. Good flavor and a smooth finish.

Brian,
Not what I was hoping for. Maybe I got a bad bottle but it smelled and tasted more like turpentine than scotch.

Brent,
It's was good. Light with Vanilla and coconut which I barely care for. Went nice with my cigar
 
Taylor
Taylor,
An interesting dram. It leaves much to be desired but good for the price point. Vanilla and alcohol up front with some coconut sweetness on the rear.
 
Robyn
Robyn,
We loved this. It was light enough for the proverbial cocktail before dinner, and very nice as an after dinner drink. The flavor is reminiscent of bourbon, with a nice finish. A great go to Scotch
 
Gregory
Gregory,
Full flavor. Neat is the only way to get the full flavors. I notice the cocnut more than the vanilla but the orange and honey come more in the after effects. All in all the Bourbon Oak casks gove this a great taste.
 
Jasson
Jasson,
An excellent dram. I've had some of their other bottlings and wasn't entirely convinced, but this one set me straight. Delicious.
 
John
John,
A tasty bang for your buck. The vanilla is lively while the coconut is subtle. Well worth the price.
