Glenrothes 26 Year Old Bottling Note

The Glenrothes distillery is a Speyside favourite, dating back to 1878! That's a lot of history, not to mention a lot of great whisky. Speaking of which - let us introduce you to our bottling of 26 year old Glenrothes single malt Scotch whisky, presented as part of our Single Cask Series! It was distilled in June 1988 and matured in a single refill bourbon hogshead cask until it was bottled in September 2014.

"probably the most concentrated form of barley I have encountered this year!... had to look twice to ensure I had the correct sample: unusually confident and intense for this distillery"

- Jim Murray (92.5 Points)

40 bottles were produced.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Soft orchard fruits and ripe tangerines (with a little touch of orange peel too). Sugared shortbread and warm pretzels dipped in butter. Hints of aromatic tree resin and maybe even some sticking plaster notes.

Palate: Opens with clove, cinnamon and woodsmoke - intensely earthy and warming. It turns juicy on the mid-palate, packed full of mango, pineapple and orange, with a suggestion of buttered sourdough bread.

Finish: Vanilla, cluster hops and green apple notes last.

Overall: A Glenrothes single malt on top form right here.
