Glenrothes Select Reserve is a single malt Scotch whisky from the Speyside region. It was created by malt master John Ramsay and is the first none aged statement bottle from the distillery. Still produced to the same high standards as the Glenrothes Vintages, only here they select and vat from casks from different years to create the Select Reserve. The Glenrothes Select Reserve is matured in oak casks and develops the vintage Glenrothes flavour. This has much to do with the slow distillation in the tall copper stills that deliver a distinctive sweet, clean and fruity spirit.
On appearance the Select Reserve is a pale gold colour, the bouquet is of American oak, vanilla and coconut with hints of plums. The palate is full bodied and malty, with medium sweet, vanilla and orange zest bursting through to provide the trademark fruitiness. The finish is medium in length and offers and medium dry touch for you to ponder over.
