The Glenrothes 12 Year Old Scotch Whisky
12 year old single malt from the Glenrothes 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 favor of age statements for the majority of the series.
A Glenrothes 12 Year Old in classic style: fruity and sweet. Aged solely in sherry-seasoned casks, this Speyside whisky has notes of vanilla, melon, banana, and cinnamon.
This 12-year-old whisky is part of The Soleo Collection: a range of five whiskies from The Glenrothes, ranging from 10 to 25 years old, which pay homage to the grapes from which some sherries, such as Pedro Ximénez, are made.
