Glenrothes Bourbon Cask Reserve Single Malt Scotch
Matured exclusively in American oak ex-Bourbon casks, the Bourbon Cask Reserve is an exceptional single malt Scotch whisky. It delivers coconut and vanilla in abundance and is soft and mellow with a crème brulée flavor. Certified kosher.
The Glenrothes Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made from plump, ripe Scottish barley, which is malted and fermented using water sourced from the Ardcanny and Brauchhill springs (the springs are situated adjacent to the distillery). Following fermentation, the grains are twice distilled through the Glenrothes' copper-pot stills. The stills, which were designed and fashioned to be exact replicas of the original stills installed in 1879, are incredibly tall and uniquely shaped, which contributes to the overall light and sweet flavor of the whisky. After distillation, The Glenrothes' stillmen remove the heads and tails of the distillate and preserve only the "hearts" for maturation (the hearts comprise less than 20% of the entire distillate).
Pale straw, clear and bright coloring. The bouquet has fresh, floral notes, coconut, American oak with notes of lilac mingling with scents of vanilla. The palate is soft and mellow with notes of crème brûlée and berry fruits. The finish is medium length, smooth and sweet.
