GLENROTHES SELECT RESERVE
This non-vintage-specific, Speyside single malt is chosen by Malt Master John Ramsay when he deems the whisky to be at its peak. It is his belief that whisky does not mature at a pre-determined age so a team of tasters check the barrels regularly to test for the perfect moment when it should be bottled. The distillery lies at the foot of the Mannoch Hills and has been in operation since 1879. Nowadays, the whisky is aged in a combination of casks that create a complex range of flavors. The whisky is first aged in oak casks that have been seasoned with Oloroso Sherry in Spain or bourbon in the US. To add some extra zing, the whisky is then matured in a combination of new seasoned casks and casks that have already been used for the maturation of malt Scotch. Some vintages are finished in bourbon barrels which have previously held malt whisky. The various methods impart a range of flavors to the Glenrothes with hints of coconut, vanilla and an underlying spiciness that will please the pallet.
