Glenrothes Vintage 1979 Single Cask Single Malt

This is the rarest of them all, only bottled when a cask is deemed to be truly outstanding and special by the Malt Master. There have been only nine casks ever bottled at Glenrothes. Two from 1966, two from 1967, one from 1977 and 4 from 1979 of which this is cask # 13458 1979 saw the installation of the new stills crated to be replicas of those from 100 years before. At 114 proof this is a strong and youthful whiskey commemorating this Centenary year of distillation. The spirit has a deep mahogany hue, aromas of vanilla and plum dominate the nose with subtle hints of spicy oak, on the palate you find dried fruits, candied plum and a haunting touch of flamed orange peel. The finish is long and sweet with citrus abounding. A rare and special treat for the Single Malt Enthusiast. The bottles are displayed in a wooden frame and each is individually numbered.
