The Glenrothes Rolls Out the Casks for New Reserve Collection's American Debut

The United Kingdom's Speyside region is home to half of the distilleries in Scotland—including Glenfiddich, The Glenlivet, Macallan and Cragganmore—and has the greatest concentration of fine malt whisky producers in the world. So what exactly is it about Speyside that makes its Scottish whiskies so superior? In Santa Monica at the Fairmont Miramar Hotel’s FIG restaurant, whisky authority Nicholas Pollacchi (of The Whisky Isle) recently had the honor of introducing US-based whisky aficionados to Speyside’s newest three vintage releases in The Glenrothes Reserve Collection: Sherry Cask, Bourbon Cask and Vintage Reserve. The single malts are blends of rare and limited vintages to make distinctive 40 percent ABV expressions.
