Bold and Elegant Vintage Scotch

There’s a tiny town in Scotland by the river Spey. They call it Rothes and with four distilleries operating there, it has Whisky embedded in its DNA: one of those Whisky-makers is the Glenrothes distillery with its history dating back to 1879. After 140 years, the artisans behind Glenrothes are still committed to creating no-B.S. fine single malts that have been the building blocks of the Speyside Scotch reputation for ages. Their house style is a warming and creamy Scotch, while many of their bottles don’t state the Spirit’s age, but a vintage. Glenrothes expressions are mainly matured in Spanish ex-Sherry casks or barrels that used to hold Bourbon.

Only 4% of Glenrothes volume is released as single malt every year – the majority is bottled as a Vintage or a Reserve. You will be, however, completely unprepared for how good this vintage is. Put away to mature in May 1992 and bottled 21 years later, this beauty spent its time in ex-Sherry and ex-Bourbon casks. It’s the second edition of the Vintage, this time produced by Malt Master Gordon Motion. The character is bold and elegant – like Grace Kelly if she was a Whisky.

Scotch Whisky is almost never aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation, while many times ageing process and flavor finishing is concluded in various wine casks, such as sherry or port.
