Glenrothes Select Reserve is like you took all of the Kardashian girls and blended them up into one consistently hot super-Kardashian. 

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.
Glenrothes has always done things a bit differently. Notably, they issue whiskey in “vintages” by maturity … meaning by taste rather than by a objective age. Does it taste right? No? Then it stays int the cask until it is. You have to respect that. The Glenrothes Select Reserve is a blend of their vintages. 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.
Glenrothes Select Reserve is a wonderful expression of Speyside golden Scotch wonderfulness. John Ramseythe Glenrothes malt master—mixes each batch from the more variable vintages to create a consistent, quality Highland spirit that embodies all of the character and style of this notable Scotch.

Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most single malts are matured longer).
