The Glenrothes has always been universally acclaimed by blenders as an exceptional Speyside Malt. Only a small number of vintages have been released, such is the exceptional quality required. Each vintage is, by definition, rare and finite. Each has its own unique personality. Of the Vintages produced to date, many are no longer available. They’ve been sold, imbibed and greatly enjoyed.
The Bottle Barn is proud to unveil a limited collection of single cask bottlings from the latest 1960s and early 1970s. The Single Cask is something that we at The Glenrothes bottle rarely- indeed, since 1994, an average of less than one a year. The reason is that, generally, two or more good casks deliver greater complexity than one single cask but, just occasionally, casks are found with such personality and such excellence that they can stand alone as examples of supremacy of the bloodline.
However, recently a small cache of casks of unimpeachable provenance came to the attention of Ronnie Cox. After a lengthy process of assessment, a small number of these casks was selected as being worthy of being bottled as The Glenrothes. The first of these casks to be bottled is the Single Cask 1970 #10573.
The Glenrothes is also recognisable by its tasting notes label – in this instance it has been positioned around the neck of the decanter to leave the body perfectly unadulterated. The label is hand-signed by the Malt Master, Gordon Motion, and numbered and dated thus ensuring each bottle is identifiable and unique. The outer case is fine, hand-crafted leather, reminiscent of luxury travel luggage. Each bottle comes with its own oak plinth, made from solid Scottish oak, for display purposes.
