The Mossburn Vintage Casks range are a collection of Single Malt Scotch Whiskies each issuing from a strictly limited and select batch of casks. Each numbered release will only ever yield a finite number of bottles. While this means that we can never replicate the particular character of this Single Malt, it also offers an opportunity to sample what we believe to be an exceptional example of the whisky made by one of Scotland’s most distinguished distilleries.
The Glenrothes Distillery was established in 1878 and today runs ten pot stills. The spirit stills are distinguished by their tall necks and boil balls, ensuring a constant reflux and giving rise to a refined and complex spirit. This whisky was aged for eleven years, the refill hogsheads allowing the natural distillery character to remain at the forefront of the spirit. Immediate aromas are of lightly roasted barley rather than oak, followed by a little malty barley sugar and Scottish shortbread sweetness, and then along comes some orange blossom and dried peel and the expected vanilla oak. The initial flavour is one of soft orange marmalade, vanilla pastry and ginger with the spicier structure again coming through a little later.
This select Single Malt Scotch Whisky has been bottled without any colouring or chill filtration.
