Carn Mor Glenrothes Celebration of the Cask 1997 Black Gold

Bottled by Càrn Mòr at a healthy 58.7%, this expression was distilled back in April 1997 and was set aside to mature in a Sherry Puncheon cask until April 2019, when it was bottled as part of the Celebration of the Cask “Black Gold” range. Only 590 bottles were produced of this incredibly rich spirit. Notes of dark chocolate, dark red fruits, intense sherry with slight coffee and vanilla notes.

Glenrothes has been producing Speyside Single Malts since 1879. The Glenrothes’s distillery is in Rothes in the heart of Speyside which is acknowledged by connoisseurs as the source of Scotland’s finest single malts; indeed, it has the highest density of distilleries of any region. This is due to the unusually clement climate experienced in this area and the ample supply of soft water provided by the river Spey. Hidden from the main street in the town of Rothes, the distillery lies at the foot of the Mannoch Hills beside the Rothes burn. The water that we use in the process of making Glenrothes comes from two natural springs, the Ardcanny and the Brauchhill, just a couple of miles upstream.

The Glenrothes is sought-after by Master Blenders across the land as a ‘top dresser’ for their blends, contributing an extra dimension of elegance, complexity and quality.

The Glenrothes Vintage Malt is the product of one year of distillation. Unlike wine, where climate is key in determining the quality of the vintage, with Single Malts it is the quality of the wood used in the oak casks which is of greatest influence.

Once a prospective Glenrothes vintage malt has been identified, its casks are systematically checked until such time as the malt is judged to be at its best for drinking; then it is bottled.

Normally this ageing process is between 10 and 16 years after distillation, producing a malt characterised by a fruity, spicy nose and a heathery-honeyed palate. On rare occasions, this ageing process can be longer, producing classics with dried fruit character and real mellowness.
