Proof66 Notes

The Glenrothes Distillery produced its first whisky in 1879 and they claim became "instantly prized by master blenders." Berry Bros & Rudd conceived of issuing scotch whisky in vintage years similar to wines and Glenrothes was a part of this new concept of treating scotch whisky. Glenrothes prides itself in using spring water the Ardcanny and Brauchhill springs. The scotch is matured in a combination of American new oak and Spanish sherry casks. Unusual for a distillery, the sherry oak is "seasoned to exact specifications" for Glenrothes.

The Glenrothes 1985 vintage single malt scotch is a 24 year old expression was first released in 1997 and has now been re-released with the "last drop" with slightly older characteristics.

I tried this one at first in a Glenrothes presentation where we tried the 1979,1984,1985,1991 and 1992 bottles and it immediately became one of my favorite single malts.
