The Glenrothes Vintage 2004 Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Limited to 3,150 bottles, The Glenrothes Vintage 2004 is made from a selection of American oak Sherry-seasoned casks laid down in 2004.
The expression is described as having notes of mango, citrus, “fudge-like” honey and “sweet, oaky vanilla”.
“The vintage releases from The Glenrothes are always highly anticipated by the team at the distillery,” said Alasdair Anderson, distillery manager for The Glenrothes.
“The Vintage 2004 is among the best I’ve tasted, with a real sweetness from the Sherry casks adding the signature fruity Glenrothes spirit.”
