Glenrothes Master's Cut Single Malt Whisky

$89.95

Glenrothes is always a huge hit around these parts. They recently changed some of their core offerings and one of our most popular whiskies, the Sherry Cask Reserve, was discontinued. This Master's Cut is its replacement. Exclusively matured in Sherry casks and bottled at a higher proof than the old Sherry Cask Reserve it's a perfect glass of Sherried malt magic. With bold notes of vanilla, scorched orange rind and a hint of dried fruits the aromatics are wide-ranging. You'll find accent notes of nutmeg and cocoa powder, and a beautifully rich mouthfeel.

If you enjoyed the old Sherry Cask Reserve, pick up a few of these and you'll have your new favorite house whisky.

The Glenrothes is an award winning Speyside Single Malt Whisky of exceptional quality. A combination of many factors including our unusually slow distillation process in tall copper pot stills deliver our characteristic sweet, fruity and elegant spirit. Further flavours are derived from our extensive knowledge of maturation in oak casks. Each expression has its own unique personality, underpinned by the distinctive, hallmark characteristics of the distillery - ripe fruits, citrus, vanilla and an exquisite spicy finish all encased in the creamiest of textures and with a complex and well-poised balance. The Glenrothes Distillery lies on a tributary of the river Spey in Scotland. Speyside is universally acknowledged as the heartland of single malt whisky distillation. The small Speyside town of Rothes is rather coy about what it does best. The only clue, if you drive down the narrow High Street with the window open, is the faint, sweet scent of distillation in the air. Rothes has been making malt whisky since 1840 and though most is used in blends, it could if it wished produce enough to fill 50 million bottles of single malt each year. At dusk you get a better idea of scale when great clouds of steam can be seen billowing up from the town's five distilleries of Speyburn, Glan Grant, Glen Spey, Caperdonich and, of course, Glenrothes. Among them, tucked away in a tree-lined gorge beside the Rothes burn, is the one that proudly bears the town's name; Glenrothes - built in1878 and arguably the best kept secret on Speyside, The Glenrothes has been distilled here since 1879.
