About This Glenrothes Single Malt
Sitting in a secluded glen by the side of the Burns of Rothes, Glenrothes is all about tradition. Doing things the traditional way, and quietly focusing on producing high-quality single malt scotch whisky. As they have been doing for the past 140 years.
This cask is a prime example. Perhaps more porous than most, resulting in a greater loss of ABV over the two-odd decades it has slumbered, this cask has worked wonders and produced a beautiful sherried whisky.
