The Glenrothes 42 Year Old


Richly sweet with brown sugar and honeycomb. Creamy with vanilla and toasted almonds. Some light oak and distinctive orange oil fragrance.

A beautifully balanced whisky bottled only at the perfect moment, 42 years. The 42 boasts an intensely aromatic fragrance, distinctly sweet taste, yet a smooth, velvety mouthfeel. Bottled at natural colour, like all our whiskies, its naturally deep amber tone is a result of the four decades' long maturation in oak casks.

Take their word

Part science, part alchemy, and a little bit of magic, the result is a beautifully elegant whisky that truly allows the bright and vibrant character of The Glenrothes to sing.
