GLENROTHES (The) 2001 43%

Single Malt, Scotland / Speyside 70cl Ref: 17408

This version is an opportunity to discover the Glenrothes in a much fruitier light than usual. In contrast to the spicy profile that is normally one of the brand’s hallmarks, and for originality’s sake, this single malt brilliantly combines intense aromas

Profile: full-flavoured, elegant. Exotic (pineapple, persimmon), fruity (mirabelle plum), vanilla-scented, candied (lemon), herbaceous, medicinal, woody (cedar) and honeyed (heather), almost floral.

Tasting note

  • Appearance : lemon yellow.
  • Nose : full-flavoured, elegant. Complex to say the least, it is simultaneously exotic (pineapple, persimmon), fruity (mirabelle plum), vanilla-scented, candied (lemon), herbaceous, medicinal, woody (cedar) and honeyed (heather), almost floral. This fruity Glenro
  • Palate : unctuous, mellow. Vanilla-inspired notes as well as hints of chilli on the tip of the tongue dominate the opening on the palate. A bitter-sweet atmosphere develops into cocoa beans and gentian root. Next, infused plants (lime blossom, chamomile) accentuat
  • Overall : long, balanced. Juicy fruit (apple, peach, pear) explode on the tongue, while a handful of spices attempt to push their way to the front, notably cloves, cinnamon and fresh coriander. This smooth blend nevertheless prioritises the dark chocolate and cocon
The brand

The brand

Up until the 1990s, only a 12 year old bottling was available on the market. But in 1994 a new bottle was introduced with a round and full shape, proudly harbouring within a 1979 vintage. This vintage expression pays testament to the vision of Berry Bros & Rudd, a company known for the quality of its cask selection, a process over which it takes particular care. This bold action brought into question the very concept of age, behind which the majority of single malts hide, and questioned consumers’ perception of the link between a whisky’s age and its aromatic maturity. However, although the year of distillation is important, it is the choice of casks (mostly Spanish wood) that has the biggest influence on the aromatic profile of its “vintage” years, each one with a different balance of spice, citrus and oak.

The line

Why a vintage rather than an age? It is important to be clear that the date indicated on The Glenrothes bottlings is the date of distillation. By specifying the date of distillation rather than the age of the whisky, The Glenrothes puts the emphasis on the identity of a single malt, created in exactly the same conditions (from the cereal to the final distillate). This philosophy of course requires numerous tastings of the malts in the barrels as they age, in order to capture each nectar at the peak of its maturity. Basically, each vintage has its own personality.
