John Ramsay the Malt Master for Glenrothes has taken great care to pick out the finest casks from different years to create the "Select Reserve". It is the first non-vintage expression from Glenrothes. Unlike the vintages, which run out quickly the "Select Reserve", will be available on a continual basis. The youngest whisky is from 1998. This is the perfect Glenrothes to enjoy all year round. 40% ABV Here are the tasting notes from the distillery: Appearance: Pale golden Nose: American oak vanilla and coconut, hints of plums Palate: Full malty flavour, medium sweet, vanilla and orange zest Finish: Long and slightly spicy.
About the Varietal:
Single malt whisky is a whisky which is distilled at a single distillery, and which is made completely from a single type of malted grain, traditionally barley, (although there are also single malt rye whiskies). Most single malt whiskies are distilled using a pot still. Single malts are produced all over the world, but the best known single malts come from Scotland, Ireland and Japan.
