The Glenrothes 12 Year Old is 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.
The Glenrothes 12 YO Tasting Notes:
Aroma: Light fragrance, banana and vanilla.
Palate: Banana, lemon and melon with a hint of cinnamon.
Finish; Long and sweet, gala melon with light spice.
