The Vintage 1998 is the next Core Vintage to follow the Vintage 1991 and 1994. It is the first of the vintages that we have bottled that was expressly laid down at origin to be bottled as Glenrothes on maturity and as such has a greater availability of stock than any of the previous bottlings.

This is also Gordon Motion's first bottling as Malt Master and he describes it as: "It's said that pictures speak a thousand words and this is like Carmen Miranda's hat in a bottle. Tropical fruits lead with pineapple and mango developing into sweet bananas, coconut and classic Glenrothes vanilla pods."

Appearance: Medium golden, clear and bright.

Bouquet: Rich, spicy vanilla, golden syrup and lemongrass.

Palate: Soft, mature, sweet vanilla with a hint of cinnamon.

Finish: Smooth, long, rich vanilla.

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.
