Glenrothes 1998 Single Malt Scotch
Glenrothes Vintage malts are the product of a set of casks that have been handpicked by the Malt Master from a particular year’s distillation and judged to be at the peak of possible perfection. Vintage selections account for a little more than 2% of the distillery’s production capacity making these rare spirits indeed. To date, only a small number of vintages have been released due to the exceptional quality required. Each vintage has its own unique personality and flavour profile, with each bottle bearing the date of distillation and also the year of bottling.
The 1998 bottling is the first to carry the label signature of Gordon Motion, who has taken over as ‘Malt Master’ with the recent retirement of John Ramsay. This vintage is noted as being the first of the series to be purposely laid down with the intention of going straight into bottle. As such, stocks of this vintage are in greater supply.
Around a third of whisky has been matured in oloroso sherry casks with the remainder being ex-bourbon. Notation on the bottle depicts the youthful character of this vintage as: 'Lemon Citrus, rich ,vanilla, cinnamon hints.
