All about making whisky
A must have LMDW“ Unveiled in Spring 2014, young single malts aged in sherry casks that boast this much maturity are a rarity. Characterised by spiced and vanilla/smoky notes, this is a worthy descendant of the famous Glenrothes 1979, sold in 1994 by La Maison du Whisky. Twenty years later, we are still responsible for distributing this prestigious Speyside single malt on the French market.
A creamy, spicy and fruity single malt, the Glenrothes Sherry Cask Reserve is a blend of whiskies aged exclusively in first-fill sherry casks. Created in a bid to highlight the role played by sherry casks in the Glenrothes range, this is also one of the rare few permanent vintages, with most of the others being limited edition vintages.
Sourcing actor, importer and exclusive distributor of a portfolio of international brands, La Maison du Whisky is, since 60 years a reference for whisky and spirit lovers. Thanks to our close relationships with producers and independent bottlers, we have access to limited editions and unique products we bring to market exclusively. Curious and creative, we are driven by our passion for products and our desire to constantly bring our clients the latest expressions through our own shops, our website whisky.fr and selected wine retail shops in France.
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.
