The Glenrothes Select Cask Reserve Scotch Whisky

Situated adjacent to the Burn of Rothes in the Speyside region of Scotland, The Glenrothes Distillery was founded by in 1879 by James Stuart, who had previously been employed at The Macallan Distillery. The distillery's history is marred by tragedy in 1897, construction workers who were attempting to expand its capacity started a fire that consumed much of the distillery's equipment and infrastructure. Twenty-five years later, a fire in the distillery's original warehouse caused the loss of 200,000 gallons of maturing whisky. Despite having lost ten copper-pot stills in various accidents since its founding, the Glenrothes Distillery is now a picture of tranquility. The Glenrothes Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made from plump, ripe Scottish barley, which is malted and fermented using water sourced from the Ardcanny and Brauchhill springs (the springs are situated adjacent to the distillery). Following fermentation, the grains are twice distilled through the Glenrothes' copper-pot stills. The stills, which were designed and fashioned to be exact replicas of the original stills installed in 1879, are incredibly tall and uniquely shaped, which contributes to the overall light and sweet flavor of the whisky. After distillation, The Glenrothes' stillmen remove the heads and tails of the distillate and preserve only the ""hearts"" for maturation (the hearts comprise less than 20% of the entire distillate). The Select Reserve is a first for The Glenrothes, it is a non-Vintage-specific selection carefully chosen by John Ramsay, Glenrothes Malt Master, to capture the essence of the distillery house character - ripe fruits, citrus, vanilla and hints of spice. The soft, sweet vanilla notes of the older whiskies are balanced out by the vibrant younger vintages imparting cherry, and lemon citrus, yielding an approachable complex flavorSelected and vatted from casks from different years, this Glenrothes expression is created to the same high quality standards as The Glenrothes Vintage selections.
