The Glenrothes Single Speyside Malt Select Reserve

The Glenrothes Single Speyside Malt Select Reserve is blended from various batches of different, unspecified years

For quite some time, the whisky makers at The Glenrothes didn't want you to have a bottle of their famous Vintage Single Speyside Malt.

In fact, a recent magazine advertisement proclaimed, "The Glenrothes isn’t shared around liberally. In fact, for the majority, this ad is the closest they’ll ever get to a bottle." Whisky writers who listed the Vintage Glenrothes as a must-buy product would often end their reviews with a teasing " ... if you can find it.”

But that all changed with The Glenrothes' release of the Select Reserve. Instead of following the tradition of bottling only exceptional vintage years, the Malt Master blended the Scotch from various batches of different, unspecified years. The result is a hybrid of exotic fruity and floral aromas, with just a hint of orange zest. A light spice lingers in the finish, rounding out the exceptionally sweet taste. Best of all, it's much easier to find than the Vintage selections, and it certainly tastes much better than a magazine ad.
