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 Alba Reserve uses specifically only American white oak ex-bourbon casks in its aging--a departure from its normal process.
