Glenrothes Select Reserve
As a non-vintage specific selection, Glenrothes Select Reserve is a vatting of casks from various years representing the heart and essence of Glenrothes. These batches from unspecified years are chosen by John Ramsay, the malt master, with emphasis on quality and consistency and will be available as an on-going basis rather than the typical ‘out and done’ release of vintages. The idea here overcomes the shortage of single malts we have come to get used to and makes The Glenrothes more widely available. The ripe fruits, citrus, vanilla and hint of spice notes are characteristically complex with a creamy texture on the tongue. The barrel shaped bottle is about $45.
