This is an easy-to-drink crowd pleaser. There is no smoke to get in the way of this soft, smooth and round single malt. The Glenrothes Reserve is on the light side and is very easy to drink. It should please any whisky drinker.

With the prices of almost all single malt whisky brands increasing by $2 every few months, it's rare to see a brand actually going down in price. But the new owners of Glenrothes (Berry Bros & Rudd, the K&L of London) want to get competitive with their new label and we've been able to bring the select reserve down to sub-$40. Many of us at K&L cut our teeth on this malt. It's soft and supple due to the sherry aging, and easy to drink. It's a huge step up over Glenlivet 12, but not as expensive as say Macallan 12. For an everyday sipper, it's pleasant and simple, hitting all the right sweet spots. It's Scotch that tastes like Scotch for people who like Scotch and it's a very fair price.

There is probably not a single better value single malt in our store. This would be the equivalent of a 10 year. Very classic Glenrothes, with a round texture, fairly rich, malty character on the mid-palate, and impeccable Glenrothes mellow, balanced character. Just a wonderful house single malt, and a terrific introduction to the joys of Speyside whisky!

I love this whiskey. It is very, very smooth, in fact, the first time I tried it I was concerned that it might have been watered down. I was on a film shoot and at wrap went on a mission with the key grip to find a good bottle to take back to the hotel. What we found was a seedy roadside liquor store and the only SIngle Malt scotch was this bottle of Glenrothes up by the cashier. We had a sip and waited for the "bite" and it never came! We actually thought that it might have been watered down! But then a nice buzz kicked it and we sampled more and with our senses tuned up, we savored the subtle citrus fruit notes, vanilla nose and mild spicy finish. This is a very good rookie whisky. I keep it on hand for anyone new to whisky or who might otherwise remember it as something harsh. To best appreciate it I try to drink it well before any strong peat smoke whiskey.

Glenrothes doesn't put an age statement on their bottles as such, but are accustomed to putting the year it was malted. At Whiskey Live 2013 in Los Angeles the man at their booth told me it was because they simply aged their whiskey for as long as was needed for the expression they were creating. To me that makes more sense as I have always suspected that strictly aiming at a fixed number of years is arbitrary.
Drink from 2010 to 2014
