Glenrothes 1988 / Glenrothes 1998

Posted by: Ruben Luyten In: * News

Glenrothes 1988 / Glenrothes 1998 The Glenrothes recently announced two new expressions, a 20 year-old Glenrothes 1988 and a 10 year-old Glenrothes 1998. Both will be released in the Far East first, so no need to rush to your local supplier.

This is the official character description on the label of the 1988 vintage: “Rich candied orange peel, fruit compote”. And for the 1998 vintage: “Lemon citrus, rich vanilla, cinnamon hints”.

By the way, The Glenrothes’ Master Distiller, John Ramsey, is retiring after 43 years in the industry. The 1988 is his last creation and the 1998 will be the first for his successor Gordon Motion.

ps/ John Ramsey’s favourite Glenrothes of all times is still the Glenrothes 1979.

ps/ Check Stefan Hennig’s website if you’re interested in The Glenrothes.
