Glenrothes 1970 Extraordinary Cask 10573 - The Whisky Isle

Glenrothes 1970 Extraordinary Cask 10573

The hallmarks of The Glenrothes are quality and purity, evident in the beautifully-balanced, elegant and well-mannered single malt with peerless texture, perfectly expressed by this single cask bottling. The spirit was distilled on July 6th, 1970. Cask #10573, an ex-bourbon hogshead, yielded just 179 bottles at a natural strength of 40.6% alcohol by volume. It was transferred to glass on April 2, 2012. Quite possibly one of the finest whiskies ever made.
As with the making of single malt Scotch whisky, the materials used in the packaging of The Glenrothes Single Cask are kept to a minimum - only crystal glass, brass, leather and oak have been used. Every element of the design exudes understated elegance; where ostentation and over-elaboration is commonplace, The Glenrothes displays proud and quiet confidence. The shape of the instantly recognizable Glenrothes bottle has been enhanced further, using hand-blown lead crystal. A plaque made of polished brass is applied to just one front facet: engraved with the year of distillation and the bottle number to ensure the uniqueness and authenticity of each individual decanter.The Glenrothes is also recognizable by its tasting notes label †in this instance it has been positioned around the neck of the decanter to leave the body perfectly unadulterated. The label is hand-signed by the Malt Master, Gordon Motion, and numbered and dated thus ensuring each bottle is identifiable and unique. The outer case is fine, hand-crafted leather, reminiscent of luxury travel luggage. Each bottle comes with its own oak plinth, made from solid Scottish oak, for display purposes.

Whisky Worth Trying

Macallan 18 Year Old Sherry - The Whisky Isle

Marzipan, caramelized orange, candied figs and plum and followed by the sweet toffee richness only found in older Macallan. This whisky is as close to perfection as you will find in an 18 year old dram.

Glenrothes 2001 Vintage - The Whisky Isle

The first vintage distilled in this millennium - a spectacular whisky with notes of dried fruit, spiced cloves and cinnamon with a rich toffee and vanilla bean aroma.

Ardbeg Uigeadail - The Whisky Isle

Ardbeg Uigeadail (pronounced 'Oog-a-dal') is a special vatting that marries Ardbeg's traditional deep, smoky notes with luscious, raisiny tones of old ex-Sherry casks.
