Douglas Laing Old & Rare Platinum Selection.
Single sherry butt distilled June 1990 and bottled June 2011. Rarely do we see sherry wood expressions from Glenrothes distillery - this one should be a real treat.
154 numbered bottles.
It noses in a very spiced style and warms to barley with citrus - akin to a clove studded orange - whilst carrying a palate packed with sugary sweet Scotch tablet, more orange, and now some late cough drop type spices. The finish reflects the palate – though it is a little drier – still being spiced and still laced with an orange liqueur.
Glenrothes Single Malt Whiskey
Glenrothes Distillery was established in the narrow valley of the Rothes Burn on the west side of Rothes in the Speyside whiskey region by James Stuart & Co. in 1878. This is a large malt whiskey distillery owned by Berry Bros & Rudd of London, with eighteen washbacks, ten copper stills singing in their own mighty cathedral and has retained its traditional pagoda roof. Popular distillery releases include Glenrothes 1995, 1998 and Glenrothes Peated.
