Released to US markets in April 2016, The Glenrothes Peated Cask Reserve is the newest addition to the Speyside distillery's Reserve Collection. This no-age-statement single malt was created by selecting and marrying 1992 Vintage casks, before finishing in used casks sourced from the peaty region of Islay (therefore, it's not exactly a peated whisky per se, but a non-peated Scotch that spent a few months in casks that held peated whisky). Inspiration came from a time in the distillery's history, when The Glenrothes formed an association with Islay Distillery Co. in 1887.
