Macrothes 25Y – 56.6%

This blend (from January 20 1994) is based on two well-known Speyside distilleries and has been all 25 years in this 1st fill sherry Oloroso Butt.

We are not allowed to write the names of the origin of the two distilleries, but can tell that it is a blend of 50% from each of the two Speyside distilleries and we have therefore named this bottling “MacRothes“.

One of the distilleries are not far from the “Speyside Cooperage Visitor Center” and the other is very close to the “Rothes” Golf Club.

The color of the whiskey is dark and a wonderfully complex scent.
Slow fat tear in the glass and what scent comes to one.
