Distilled in 1992, this Glenrothes expression was finished in casks hailing from the peaty lands of Islay to add a kiss of smoke to complement but not overpower its exquisite character. The result is a whisky that is deliciously smoky with notes of vanilla, citrus and spice.

Situated adjacent to the Burn of Rothes in the Speyside region of Scotland, The Glenrothes Distillery was founded by in 1879 by James Stuart, who had previously been employed at The Macallan Distillery. The distillery's history is marred by tragedy — in 1897, construction workers who were attempting to expand its capacity started a fire that consumed much of the distillery's equipment and infrastructure.

Twenty-five years later, a fire in the distillery's original warehouse caused the loss of 200,000 gallons of maturing whisky. Despite having lost ten copper-pot stills in various accidents since its founding, the Glenrothes Distillery is now a picture tranquility.

An early association with the Islay Distillery Co in 1887 serves as the motivation behind this new expression, inspired by serendipity, crafted by experts. This Glenrothes selection is a marriage of whiskies from a Vintage 1992, matured it in a peated whisky cask “hailing from the peaty lands of Islay.”

The Glenrothes is an award-winning Speyside single malt of exceptional quality and a pioneer in the Scotch whisky industry. All our Single Malt is Vintage Whisky. And when we say Vintage, we don't just mean aged; we mean whisky distilled in a particular year that has reached its peak of maturity, character and flavor. At which point, we have a choice to make: to either bottle these rare and finite expressions as Single Vintages, or marry them together in perfect harmony to create one of our exquisite Reserves.
