GLENROTHES (The) 2004 43%

Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Speyside, 70cl, Ref: 53341

Following the 2001 vintage, this 2004 vintage showed promise in 2015, but the casks were held back and matured in 100% new American Oak Sherry casks for a further 18 months. Using experimental casks means that the distillery is constantly learning about the maturation of the Glenrothes spirit. This together with the understanding of the aromas and tastes derived from different woods –American and Spanish- and cask selection lead them into new territory and has resulted in achieving an even greater ‘classic’ expression than anticipated. This is another ‘must-try’ Glenrothes Vintage which makes it into the ‘relaxing conversational’ style – seriously profound and exemplifying all the characteristics of the Glenrothes Single Malt Whisky and its interaction with American wood. The flavours are a combination of vanilla fruitiness with an abundant fudge-like honey notes wrapped in a blanket of maturity.

Appearance : Burnished gold, clear and bright

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.
