Description

Maturation Magic 

Unlike most Speyside whiskies matured in ex-bourbon casks, the Sherry Cask Reserve undergoes its entire aging process in first-fill sherry casks. These casks were previously used to mature sherry, a fortified wine from Spain. The fresh sherry casks impart a unique and intense layer of flavor to the whisky.

Aromatic Adventure

On the nose, the Glenrothes Sherry Cask Reserve opens up with a burst of rich aromas. Imagine plump raisins soaked in sherry, mingling with the warmth of candied ginger and a hint of freshly grated orange peel. Underlying these bold notes is a subtle sweetness reminiscent of vanilla and crumbly shortbread dusted with sugar.

Flavorful Journey

The first sip takes you on a journey through the heart of the Speyside region. The signature malt character of The Glenrothes shines through, but it’s beautifully balanced by the dominant sherry influence. The taste buds are treated to a delightful dance of flavors: spiced fruit cake with hints of ginger, followed by a wave of citrusy orange peel. As the whisky lingers on the palate, a smooth wave of creamy vanilla and honey emerges, creating a well-rounded and satisfying finish.

Beyond the Glass

The Glenrothes Sherry Cask Reserve is a versatile whisky that can be enjoyed neat, savored on the rocks, or used to create unique cocktails.  Due to its rich flavor profile, it pairs exceptionally well with a variety of foods.  For a decadent treat, try it alongside creamy and bloomy cheeses, or complement a savory dish with mushrooms or root vegetables.  For those with a sweet tooth, the whisky pairs wonderfully with chocolate and coffee desserts or anything with vanilla and caramel notes.
