Tasting and Review by Daniel & Rex in the Whisk(e)y Vault
Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky.
Glenrothes Alba Reserve is something of a departure for the distillery – where normally a large proportion of European sherry oak is used in their assemblages, this expression is comprised entirely of ex-bourbon American Oak. The ‘Alba’ in the name refers to American Oak’s Latin name of Quercus Alba as well as being the old Gaelic name for Scotland.
Under the KLBD Supervision.
