Description

FULL DESCRIPTION
This vintage from the distillery was bottled in 2009 making it 11 years old. The team at Glenrothes don’t release each vintage willy-nilly, they wait for the whisky to reach perfection so that their customers get the best expression of each year.

TASTING NOTES
Appearance: Radiant gold.
Nose: Vanilla, fresh citrus and buttery toast notes.
Taste: Fresh rose apples and pears with warm honey.
Finish: Warming, earthy spice notes leading to brown sugar.
Overall: Reminiscent of a warm summer’s afternoon in an orchard.

Gift

The Glenrothes vintage releases are a really fun and interesting way to approach whisky. Trying different years beside each other can be a little bit more stimulating than just looking at different age statements. Get the Glenrothes 1998 for anyone that loves hosting whisky tastings for their friends.

RECOMMENDATIONS
