The hunt for amazing Glenrothes

Glenrothes has always been “there”. It’s not typically on any (in my whisky group) “must buy” list, their OBs don’t really excite too many people (typically, and again, just from what I’ve read, YMMV), but they have their fans. I’m sure of it. Why? Because I’ve had them poured for me. And based on reviews, […]

Glenrothes 2003 Single Cask

Thanks to /u/Saba007 for this one Glenrothes. I enjoy them. Quite a bit. As long as they are a) independently bottled and b) cask strength. Oh, and c) ex-Bourbon casks. I’m a sucker for them. Enter Saba007. He likes Glenrothes as well. But he likes Sherry casks. So he goes out and gets an OB, single cask, […]

Glenrothes-Glenlivet 20 1997 Cadenhead’s Small Batch

Glenrothes Alba Reserve

Thanks to /u/ScotchChick for pouring me a sample. As I slowly catch up on Glenrothes, I notice that I typically stick to independently bottled varieties. And there are some from Glenrothes who may point this out, and say I should give more of their OBs a chance. Not that I’ve ignored them. The 1995 and Select Reserve […]

Glenrothes 10 2007 Adelphi

It’s an odd situation when I hear people are waiting for my opinion on what whiskies they should buy. For one, there’s plenty of places that I go to for reviews. Whiskyfun, various other bloggers, Ralfy, Reddit reviewers, and Whiskybase, to name just a few. Recently there was a release that popped up in Canada, […]
