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.

Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
The Berry Brothers gave Cutty Sark back to the Edrington Group, when they acquired Glenrothes.
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.
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
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.
