Glenrothes John Ramsay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
Specially selected by retiring Glenrothes malt master John Ramsay after 43 years service, this bottling came from a vatting of twenty, second fill American oak sherry casks racked into sherry butts. The two casks showing most development were vatted together and slowly reduced to 46.7%. Only 1400 bottles released. A fitting tribute to a giant of the whisky world!
Other reviews...Made from whisky aged in second fill American oak sherry casks, distilled between 1973 to 1987. Richly malty, with honeyed citrus, juicy oak, chocolate fudge, and nougat. More subtle floral notes, licorice (red and black), ginger, and chamomile tea. Polished oak on the finish balances the sweetness. A great whisky to honor a great whisky maker!
