Glenrothes Alba Reserve

Glenrothes Alba Reserve Bottling Note

A surprising release from Glenrothes - this is comprised entirely of ex-Bourbon whiskies (matured in Bourbon casks). The name Alba makes reference to Quercus Alba, the Latin name for American Oak. Not to be confused with ALMA - The Atacama Large Millimeter Array - one of the world's most sophisticated Radio Telescope Arrays - which doesn't taste as nice.

Now known as The Glenrothes Bourbon Cask Reserve

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Freshly baked bread with butter, almonds and coconut, a little white chocolate.

Palate: White pepper, cinnamon, a little blackberry. Whole vanilla pods in honey.

Finish: Lingering charred bourbon oak and orange oil.

User Reviews of the Glenrothes Alba Reserve

Not my favorite

Alba is ok for the price, but not up to the standard I am used to from The Glenrothes.

A little fiery , even when the bottle is below the shoulders. There isn't much complexity to the nose, I get candied fruit mostly.

The taste is sweet, honey more than the touted vanilla, at least to me. I like sweet, but this is more than where I would like it to be. Fruit flavors come through second, pineapple and coconut, and they linger nicely, which is the best part.

light and balanced

Lacks complexity, but clean and crisp. Great bottle for the price, do what we Americans do and buy a six pack, it Wont last long in your collection.
