The Glenrothes Manse Reserve – Tasting Notes

Released for Travel Retail, the Manse Reserve is part of the Manse Brae Reserves collection and carries no age statement. 43% ABV and matured mostly in American Oak, with some influence from Sherry Oak casks.

The Glenrothes Manse Reserve
Nose: Marzipan, dried fruits and woodland tones.
Palate: Very heavy notes of raisins, as well as pears, vanilla custard and sugary fruit shortcake biscuits.

Finish: Long lasting. Sweet fruits and dry Autumn spices (particularly ginger and nutmeg).

Overall: Sweet, delicate and not overly complex. A dessert whisky that would suit a cool Autumn evening.

About The Glenrothes

The Glenrothes distillery is tucked away in the middle of the Speyside region, at the foot of the Mannoch Hills, between the small town of Rothes and the Rothes Burn. The water used in its single malts is drawn from the Ardcanny and Brauchhill springs. Established in 1879, they have survived two fires, an explosion and several rebuilds. Today they have 10 copper stills working to produce over 5 million litres of whisky every year. The Glenrothes are one of very few Scottish distilleries to still have a cooperage on-site.
