Bottled tropical sunshine with misty Scottish undertone.

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.

The Glenrothes 18-year-old is a lush expression that has summer written all over it. It's part of The Soleo Collection, a range of five Glenrothes Whiskies that pay homage to the grapes from which certain Sherries are made (PX, for instance). Why? Because this sweet/spicy potion was matured in ex-Sherry casks and it oozes with refreshing aromas and rich flavors. It's a perfect choice for after-dinner lounging and it plays well with fine chocolate or cheese. It's sophisticated and it took the distillery a long time to create this luxury.

Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.

Fantastic. Unbelievably easy to drink. This was the First bottle of scotch I really got to try on my own, being 22, it was a Christmas present. Highly recommend.

Outstanding - my go-to bourbon. Smooth and light with a lingering sweetness at the end.

Matthew,
Did you write this on the right page? This is a Speyside Single Malt, nowhere near a bourbon.

Simply delightful. Incredibly smooth, not very peaty.

One of the best whiskies I’ve had. It was very smooth, light for an 18 year old, and super easy to drink.

Charles,
Great sherry aroma. Hints of oak and vanilla. Taste was smooth initially finish with a bit of spice. Sherry was not as prevalent as the smell. Still red fruit flavors, citrus tones and vanilla with a peppery finish. Very good.
