A delightful NAS Scotch that celebrates the PX.

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 Whisky Maker's Cut is a creation of Master Distiller Gordon Motion, aged in the finest first-fill Sherry casks, and one of the Malts from the exciting Soleo Collection. Mr. Motion says 48.8% is a bit higher, yet complimentary strength and a perfect choice for any lover of Whiskies that spent some time with Sherry. The screaming red color on the bottle reflects the color of the Pedro Ximénez grape just before it begins to ripen. It's the only “No Age Statement” release within the collection and it's bottled at natural cask strength and color.

Ratings & Reviews
Dan
Dan,
I really enjoy this with a splash of water. It's more of a late night dessert than it is an after-work relaxer. It's got an Aberlour cask strength feel to it, although it's not cask strength.
 
Eduardo
Eduardo,
Sweet notes of caramel and dried fruits like raisins and figs, a bit of oak and orange zest, warm feeling with nice aftertaste
 
Brian
Brian,
very smooth, reminded me of a blanton's
 
Duane
Duane,
It’s amazing the difference a small splash of water makes to this whisky. It changes the flavor immensely.
