Staff Pick Notes

This is a delicious whisky from Speyside. This area is a protected region for Scotch Whisky distilling under the UK government legislation. About 50% of Scottish whisky is made here. This warm area is great for its production. It's also close to barley farms and to the Atlantic port of Garmouth. Glenrothes is a very well respected distillery between critics and connoisseurs. This is great example of this whisky area production. It has been matured for 12 years in Sherry casks. You can enjoy tropical fruit, such as banana and melon followed by vanilla. It's smooth, full of character and elegant. Drink it neat or on the rocks! Amazing!
