12 year old single malt from the Glenrothes Speyside distillery, released as part of the Soleo Collection. This range takes its name from the process of sun-drying grapes in Jerez for sherry production, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that sherried deliciousness is a focus here. Also noteworthy is the lack of vintage on the label, with Glenrothes decides to eschew them in favour of age statements for the majority of the series.
Matured only in sherry seasoned oak casks and bottled at natural colour with a character of vanilla, melon, and cinnamon. Light fragrance, banana and vanilla. Taste of banana, lemon and melon with a hint of cinnamon. Finish is long and sweet, gala melon with light spice.
Perhaps in a nod to that age-worthy nature, until recently, the Glenrothes Speyside released its whisky by vintage date rather than age statement. This release, The Glenrothes Speyside 12 Year Old, represents a move in a different direction. It’s the second-youngest member of the recently introduced Soleo Collection, Glenrothes’ brand new core lineup, which is organized according to the standard metric of years in barrel rather than year distilled.
Named for the Spanish term for sun-drying sherry grapes before pressing, the series pays tribute to Glenrothes’ dependence on sherry casks for its distinctive character. This bottling is stored entirely in sherry casks for the duration of its maturation, then proofed down to 40% and bottled at natural color.
Gingerbread, stewed apple and earthy vanilla, then soft tropical fruit notes and a hint of sherried funk.
Creamy hazelnut, dried fruit and a hint of cinnamon. Hints of chocolate, old leather, dried herbs and tobacco add depth among Galia melon and honeyed oak.
Long and sweet with a touch of baking spice and more stewed fruits.
A perfect introduction to all things that make Glenrothes fantastic.
