For 125 years, The Glenrothes Single Speyside Malt has been recognized by distillers as one of the finest of all single malt whiskies. It is the long and careful maturation in cask that forms the distinctive character of The Glenrothes. Glenrothes challenged John Sutherland, their Distiller, to find some exceptional casks to bottle as his 'Select Reserve'. This is the first non-vintage statement whisky produced by Glenrothes, as the vintage bottlings tend to sell out quick. The yougest vintage in this bottling is from 1998 making this Glenrothes available year around. The result is a whisky with aromas of dried fruit, coconut and vanilla. Followed by delicious ripe fruits, fresh citrus flavors with oak-infused vanilla and a hint of spice, plus a typically creamy texture on the palate.
