The Glenrothes Vintage 2004 Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky

The Glenrothes Vintage 2004 Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky

$130.00

A 2004 vintage Glenrothes, distilled in March and left in sherry-seasoned oak until January 2017, when the single malt was bottled at 43% ABV. The sherry casks add a wonderful sweetness to the Speysider, with a hint of subtle smokiness in there too.

Released in April 2018, this vintage-dated Speyside single malt was all distilled in 2004. It matured in sherry-seasoned American oak and was selected by malt master Gordon Motion. Bottled at 43% ABV, there are only 3150 for the US market.

Smoke and heat open the door to the sensory experience of this single malt. Smoked coconut, charred tea leaves, fresh wood chips, cooked banana, ripe date plum, gala apples, bergamot, sunflowers, toasted seeds, overcreamed milk, and pungent citrus oils come together for a full bodied, and robust drink.

All of the The Glenrothes Vintage 2004 single malt is Vintage malt — whisky distilled and put in cask in a single year, then bottled as either a Reserve or Vintage when judged to be at its peak of maturity, character and flavor. At The Glenrothes, maturity matters more than age. Just 4 percent of the distillery’s capacity is released as single malt each year, ensuring that whisky lovers receive the best of the best. A combination of many factors, including an unusually slow distillation process in tall copper-pot stills, maturation in exceptional oak casks and a commitment to both craftsmanship and sustainability, delivers expressions with unique personalities and complex, well-poised balance.
