2005 Glenrothes 8 Year Old K&L Exclusive Sovereign Single Sherry Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky 750ml

SKU #1154936

We are so lucky to have such incredible suppliers. We built relationships with some of Scotland's best bottlers and none more exciting than the Laing Brothers. Stewart Laing's new company Hunter Laing is responsible for bottling our Sovereign line of single malts and when we told Stewart that we were looking for some affordable options to go with our three incredible old Islay casks, he was happy to oblige. You may know Glenrothes, the gorgeous little distillery outside of Aberlour, as one of Speyside's finest. There are no questions that Glenrothes is a blue chip malt and finding it on the secondary market is rare. Finding first fill single barrel cask strength sherry butts for less than $50 is just silly. It's like having our own A'bunadh. This unctuous little cask has everything you could want from a young sherry bomb. Despite the youth, we have powerfully aromas, shifting from Glenrothes' classic earthy pepper notes to the dense dried raisin and baking spices. The high proof isn't evident on the palate, but it swims really really well. A like this a lot with a few drops of water. We probably should have bought two of these. At this price it will be gone soon.

A delicious pleaser. It is rich, round and soft and very easy to drink. There is a nice long subtle spicy finish that keeps this Glenrothes interesting. As with most cask strength single malts, a splash of water helps open up the flavors of the spirit.
