Distilled at Glenrothes Distillery in November 1996. Bottled Glasgow February 2014. Un-chill filtered, no artificial colouring. Aged 17 years old at 55.8% alcohol by volume
From the same vintage as the 16 years old. The strength is a little higher but over all has pretty much the same characteristics. Although as it was matured in a different cask there just a hint banana that is missing from the 16 years bottling.
The Distillery which was established in 1878, is one of five situated in the small town of Rothes. It is located beside the Burn of Rothes which flows from the Mannoch Hills into the River Spey Blenders consider this one of the top malts and as such Glenrothes is at the heart of some of the finest blends such as Cutty Sark and The Famous Grouse.
