Description:
The Vintage 1995 was the first ever Vintage specifically laid in cask with the intention of, when mature, bottling as The Glenrothes.

With about 30% from first fill American Sherry oak delivering butterscotch: Spice and dried fruits from 1st fill Spanish Sherry oak and the rest from refill casks giving the characteristic Glenrothes balance and complexity of flavour. Arguably it is preferable post-dinner when conversation is in full flow.

It fulfils every anticipation of The Glenrothes: A "come-hither" nose filled with exotic spices is followed by a citrus and fruity richness coated in honeyed butterscotch. These flavours, and more, are all delivered on the palate culminating with a long, rich and satisfying, fruity spiciness.

Appearance: Medium golden, clear and bright.

Bouquet: Floral, citrus and butterscotch notes with a hint of spicy white pepper and cedar-wood syrup.

Palate: Rich, sweet, soft fruit flavour, leading to a rich spiciness.

Finish: Sugared citrus peel soft fruits, medium dry with abundant spices.

Producer Information

In 1879 something new, beautifully crafted and pure entered the world: the first spirit from the stills at The Glenrothes.
That's a while ago now, but this exceptional Single Speyside Malt whisky has been kept pretty much a secret from those outside the industry and a small band of connoisseurs for over a hundred years. But word gets out and once discovered this is a malt people enjoy, and seem to want to share with likeminded folk. Glenrothes think that it's exceptional and of course they would - and it seems other people increasingly think so too.
And so now's the time for you to discover The Glenrothes, share the news and share this malt with likeminded people.
The making of all Scotch Malt Whisky is a story of transformation ? from barley to golden spirit. Along the way the barley is steeped in water, allowed to germinate, dried, milled, mashed, fermented, distilled and then put in casks to mature.
They take exceptional care in the birth of The Glenrothes spirit. Their prime Scottish barley - malted in the traditional way in Saladin boxes - is mashed with pure water from their own springs, the Ardcanny and 'The Lady's Well'.
The Glenrothes Distillery sits beside the Burn of Rothes in the heart of Speyside - the area of the Scottish Highlands universally acknowledged as the heartland of malt distillation. Their private spring, 'The Fairies' (or Lady's) Well', is in the nearby Glen of Dounie, and all the land surrounding this vital source is owned and protected by the distillery.
Distillation began at Glenrothes on Sunday, December 28th 1879. In 1896 the distillery was expanded as demand from blenders grew for this increasingly prized malt whisky.
100 years after the founding, new stills were installed, in 1979.
Since its opening, the distillery was recognised as one of the best; the whisky one of the most sought after on Speyside. The structure, flavour and body of The Glenrothes makes it a 'top dresser' or quality enhancer found at the heart of some of the world's finest blends such as Cutty Sark and The Famous Grouse. Expert distillers and blenders claim that it produces one of the finest and most accomplished of malt whiskies.
The distillery is not open to the general public although sometimes special guests are invited to Rothes House and to visit the distillery.
