From the First Batch of Glenrothes' UK Exclusive single cask series, this was distilled in 2006 and matured in single cask #5465, then bottled at cask strength in 2017, weighing in at a weighty 66.8% ABV. Exclusively bottled for the UK!
Earmarked from an early stage an ideal component in blended Scotch whiskies, Glenrothes has long been a key part of big brands such as Cutty Sark and Famous Grouse. Its relationship with the former, lead to a three decade-long association with London wine-merchants, Berry Brothers & Rudd, who first approached Highland Distillers about licensing the Glenrothes single malt brand in 1983, eventually trading the Cutty Sark blend with Edrington for full ownership of it in 2010. The distillery itself remained with Edrington through, and the two were reunited when the now hugely successful brand was returned in 2017.
