Glenrothes to release 1992 vintage

The Glenrothes has announced the release of its 2nd Edition single malt whisky in the US. 

The Glenrothes Vintage 1992 –  44.3%abv - is aged 10 years longer than the 1st Edition in a mixture of refilled Sherry Butts and American ex-Bourbon Hogsheads.

Ronnie Cox, brand heritage director at Berry Bros. & Rudd Spirits, said: “This edition of the Vintage 1992 is definitely an uplifting, conversational style.

“The original 1992 was more formal and austere; here we have a confident, but altogether more ‘come-hither’ expression. This edition is the first Glenrothes Vintage comprised entirely of whisky aged in refill casks, allowing the true Glenrothes character to come through.”

The Glenrothes Vintage 1992 will initially launch in the US in October with an RRP of $249.99. The 2nd Edition will be available in other markets in 2015 priced at £175 / €215.
