Glenrothes Single Speyside Malt Scotch Whisky 1998
This expression is the next Core Vintage to follow the Vintages 1991 and 1994. It is the first of the vintages expressly laid down at origin to be bottled as Glenrothes on maturity. As a result it is anticipated that The Glenrothes 1998 Vintage will have greater longevity than some of the earlier vintages. It is also the first bottling to carry the label signature of Gordon Motion, who has taken over as 'Malt Master' with the recent retirement of John Ramsay. The comparatively youthful 1998 Glenrothes boasts a nose of spicy vanilla, golden syrup and lemongrass. The palate is gentle and quite sweet, with vanilla custard and cinnamon notes.
