Another entry in The Glenrothes' excellent range of vintages. A 1995 vintage single malt from the Glenrothes distillery in Speyside, which has been aged exclusively in American oak casks seasoned with dry Oloroso Sherry and bottled in 2016. Richly creamy with hints of honey'd fruit and cinnamon spiciness.
The Vintage 1995 was the first ever Vintage specifically laid in cask with the intention of, when mature, bottling as The Glenrothes. However, at that stage, some of these casks were held back. The whisky was moved, filling 100 percent first-fill American Oak casks, seasoned only with Dry Oloroso Sherry. Now, decades later, the result is this outstanding expression. The flavours are complex, delivering a long and delicately satisfying taste with light fruit and vanilla spiciness, encased in a honeyed sweetness. It truly is another wonderful addition to the ever increasing Glenrothes stable. Profile : Plums, melon, vanilla, zests.
Nose: Cracked black pepper, strawberries and cream, lemon meringue, apricot.
Palate: Sweet at first with juicy plum and orange. A savoury hint of buttered corn underneath. Softly simmering hints of hot cinnamon.
Finish: Crunchy brown sugar, sultanas, vanilla.
Every Single Malt we create is Vintage. By that, we don't just mean aged. We mean whisky distilled in a particular year that reaches it's peak of maturity, flavour and character. At which point, we have a choice to make: to either bottle these rare and finite expressions as Single Vintages, or marry them together in perfect harmony to create one of our exquisite Reserves.
The Glenrothes is an award-winning Speyside Single Malt and a pioneer in the whisky industry.
Nestled in the Scottish Highlands, the Speyside region is universally acknowledged as the heartland of Single Malt Whisky distillation. On 28th December 1879 the first pure spirit flowed from the stills at The Glenrothes distillery.
