A first

The first 50 Year Old and oldest ever whisky to be released by The Glenrothes.

Hidden for half a century in the seclusion of The Glenrothes Estate.

Wood, whisky and craft have worked together to form a milestone.

The Glenrothes 50 Year Old

The highlight of ownership – tasting this unique whisky.

  • Aroma

    A cascade of fragrant woody spices, lilting between cedar wood and cloves, with grounding notes of linseed oil and rich muscovite sugar. A hint of fragrant jasmine.

  • Taste

    A drama of complexity. Intensely sweet and spicy, with flares of cardamom, fennel seeds and vanilla pods, while notes of cedar play throughout.

  • Finish

    Delicate and refined. A gentle lingering of woody spices.
