Glenrothes John Ramsay Legacy - The Whisky Isle

Glenrothes John Ramsay Legacy

John Ramsay retired in June 2009. He had been 'Malt Master' for The Glenrothes since the early 1990s. The genius behind the whisky's exceptional quality, his signature has been on all fourteen labels since 2004. To mark this occasion, the distillery asked John to make an expression that he would be proud to sign his name to for the very last time. So he identified a pocket of 2nd fill American Oak sherry casks from Vintages ranging from 1973 to 1987. These he married, reduced very gradually in strength-without chill filtering-to produce a Glenrothes that will stand as his legacy to The Glenrothes.

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.
