Rumour has it that this sherry matured mystery malt is one very tasty young Glenrothes.

The second batch of Speyside #3 from that Boutique-y Whisky Company features a gaggle of ghosts on the label (we're pretty sure that's the collective noun for ghosts). They're raising a toast on a dark evening. There are a few you might recognise; Glendronach’s Spanish Lady, Bowmore’s Headless Horseman, and isn’t that Biawa ‘Byeway’ Makalaga said to have haunted The Glenrothes distillery? Then there’s The Fair Maid of Galloway, and Glen Scotia’s Duncan MacCallum. The whisky itself is a 6 year old from an undisclosed distillery in Speyside. With so many distilleries around that area, it might be a bit tough to guess which one it came from, though the label is said to offer a clue or two. Given this is No.3 in the series, could it be ...Glenrothes?? What we do know is that the malt has been a significant component in some very famous blends. 4,094 bottles make up this batch, drawn from four ex-sherry butts. Yes, it’s young, but apparently it shows off the distillery character wonderfully without too much wood influence. 49.3% Alc./Vol.

Notes from the bottlers... Nose: Very fruity, with nectarines, strawberries and blood oranges, before vanilla and toffee soften plenty of ripe, gristly malt. Palate: Plenty more stone fruits and ripe red apples with notes of barley sugar, toasty cereals and acacia honey in support. Finish: Good length, with delicate peppery spice and malt extract.
