Now, the wait is over:  a remarkable new expression is arriving in fine wine and spirits stores across the U.S.  The Glenrothes Vintage 1994 is released to complement the successful Vintage 1991which ~ as anticipated ~ will soon be extinct.

For the Vintage 1994, legendary Malt Master John Ramsay was tasked to create a stimulating and uplifting expression of The Glenrothes. Through meticulous cask selection and a lifetime of experience in Scotch Whisky, John has succeeded in combining the trademark flavor profile of The Glenrothes ~ a balanced complexity of citrus, spice, ripe fruits and vanilla – with lemon zestiness on the finish.

The Glenrothes Vintage 1994 features hand-written tasting notes on the label describing the appearance, nose and taste. The appearance is pale golden, clear and bright.  The nose is fruity with hints of toffee and marshmallows.  The palate is soft and fruity with notes of lemon citrus.  The finish is long, soft and fruity.  The Vintage 1994 has a zestiness which may pleasantly surprise even the most regular of Glenrothes enthusiasts.  Created as the most stimulating and uplifting expression, to whet the appetite and enhance the mood, Vintage 1994 is best after a light meal or before dinner to stimulate the appetite.

As with each expression from The Glenrothes, the Vintage 1994 is released in keeping with The Glenrothes standard of bottling selected casks at their peak of optimum maturity and maximum flavor. The combination of tall stills, an unusually slow distillation, paired with an unparalleled cask management policy each combine to make The Glenrothes one of the most well-balanced and flavorsome of Single Malt Scotch Whiskies.

The Glenrothes Vintage 1994 is available at fine wine & spirits shops nationwide.
