The Glenrothes is bottled at it's peak of maturity and flavour, rather than at a pre-determined age. Distillation is unusually slow and takes place in tall stills, which deliver a sweet, clear, fruity spirit. Maturation is in American oak and Spanish oak.
Glenrothes descibe the whisky as mellow soft fruits and honey.
