2015 is a big year for me personally as it is my 40th in May, as such I will be posting a number of 1975 vintages or 40 year old whiskies this year, starting with this Back Glenrothes 1975.
This is an outstanding dram from The Glenrothes in the 1978 Vintage.
The eldest of the whiskies we were sampling tonight and one that i really really need to buy a bottle of, this stuff is fantastic and just suits my personal style of whisky perfectly.
This was the original vintage which Glenrothes wanted to release but they waited a little while and released the 1998 instead, that wait really paid off and this is a fantastically rounded dram and on
This was the first of the Glenrothes bottles which were bottled as a "vintage" originally the 1995 was meant to be first but wasn't quite ready,
Recently released by Berry Bros & Rudd this 2001 vintage of The Glenrothes is a really interesting dram and shows a lot of character from this lovely distillery.
A fabulous dram from The Glenrothes this Alba Reserve is all ex bourbon matured giving it huge pear notes of pear drops and tinned pears in syrup.
Another interesting dram from The Glenrothes this is the Robur Reserve normally only available in Travel Retail.
Thank you to The Glenrothes Distillery and Helen at Big Partnership for the official sample of The Glenrothes Select Reserve.
A cracking sherried dram from The Glenrothes is this recently released Sherry Cask Reserve.
