Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Bottled by: The Alistair Walker Whisky Company 70cl / 58.7%
Alistair Walker's Infrequent Flyers bottlings are reliably excellent and often show hitherto-hidden sides of well-known distilleries.
This Glenrothes 2009 has been bottled as a 12-year-old for the Infrequent Flyers range after ending its maturation in a Marsala cask, adding sweetness and complexity. This 12-year-old Marsala finished 2009 Glenrothes yielded 265 bottles at a mighty 58.7%.
