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 1994 is mean to be a zesy "surprise" to Glenrothes enthusiasts. It has no smokiness but rather fruit and spice on the palate.

The 1994 is too strong for my liking - to the point that I would call it 'crude'. However it is still enjoyable although i think there are better options for the same money.

Not a scotch for the timid! This is robust and BIG tasting with a long peaty finish. Tastes much stronger than the 86 proof it actually is. I enjoyed it a great deal but would not recommend it for anyone first getting into scotch.
