The Glenrothes Tasting

In July of 2009 the Hamilton Whisky Society was fortunate to host Robin Coupar from The Glenrothes. He brought an excellent presentation on the history of The Glenrothes and Berry Bros. and Rudd as well as a deep knowledge and appreciation of whisky. It was a smashing evening. The group favorite was The Glenrothes 1975. The Glenrothes 1973 was very interesting with perhaps a note of anise on the back end. The Glenrothes 1985 and The Glenrothes 1991 are excellent and classic expressions of this fine Speyside malt. The Signatory bottle was delicious but uncharacteristically smoky for The Glenrothes which is why I so often enjoy independent bottlingsĀ of my favorite whiskies.

Here are representative pictures of the whiskies we enjoyed:
