The Glenrothes Manse Reserve. Image courtesy Berry Bros. & Rudd.This is one of the 2013 releases in the Manse Brae travel retail lineup for The Glenrothes, and is named after the street on which the distillery’s Rothes House mansion is located.

The nose has notes of red apples, ripe peaches, and hints of pumpkin, nutmeg, and oak. The taste is smooth and fruity with red apple pie, cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, and a honey sweetness. The finish is dry and slightly sweet with honey and hints of nutmeg and cardamom spices. Very nice. (November, 2013)
