The Glenrothes is an award winning Speyside Single Malt and a pioneer in the whisky industry. All their Single Malt is Vintage Whisky. And when they say Vintage, they don't just mean aged; they mean whisky distilled in a particular year that has reached its peak of maturity, character and flavour. What makes The Glenrothes different is also what makes it exceptional. At the Glenrothes, they only bottle their Single Malt Whisky at the moment it reaches its peak of maturity and taste. Thus, all of their whisky is, by its very nature, Vintage. You see, age statements are no guarantee of quality or taste. What happens to the whisky in the cask is far more important than the number of years it spends inside it. Much like a fine wine, whisky matures at its own pace. Which is why each individual cask of theirs is carefully checked, nosed and tasted many times over many years, until perfect. Every expression they create must have its own unique personality, underpinned by our distillery's characteristic flavour profile - ripe fruits, citrus, vanilla and an exquisite spicy finish all encased in the creamiest of textures and with a complex yet well-poised balance. Only when it meets our thorough requirements can it be bottled, either within one of our exquisite Reserves, as a unique and finite Single Vintage, or as a much soughtafter Special Release.
