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.

Character Dogson
The Berry Brothers gave Cutty Sark back to the Edrington Group, when they acquired Glenrothes.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
Casks are filled with an average strength of 68.9% ABV, which is higher than most distilleries.
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, though).
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
