Glenrothes 19 year old Vintage 1995
Glenrothes 19 year old is a superb single malt whisky from this Speyside distillery. The whisky was distilled in 1995 and has some creamy and buttery notes on the palate.
Glenrothes distillery was founded in 1879 by a group of entrepreneurs. The company that managed the distillery was called William Grant and Co (different from Glenfiddich parent company William Grant and Sons). This company joined another company in 1887 and together they were called Highland Distillers Company Ltd. The production capacity was expanded in 1898, 1963 and 1989. The first expansion took place after a devastating fire in 1897. The official releases are sold by wine merchants Berry Bros and Rudd. Unlike most distilleries, the Glenrothes releases 'vintages' rather than releases with an age statement. Each vintage is unique and some of them can be very rare and limited.
