Glenrothes Bourbon Cask Reserve

The Glenrothes' Bourbon Cask Reserve bottle

The Glenrothe’s Bourbon Cask Reserve is formerly known as Alba Reserve, but the name was changed for transparency and simplicity of trade and consumer understanding. A certified Kosher expression it is matured exclusively in American oak ex-Bourbon casks.

The Glenrothes’ normal wood policy uses a combination of Spanish and American oak, seasoned with sherry, bourbon and malt Scotch (known as refill). Of those only Bourbon is 100% Kosher.

For this expression Gordon Motion has used Glenrothes matured exclusively in American oak refill Bourbon casks. It therefore delivers coconut and vanilla in abundance, and is soft and mellow with a crème brulée flavour and feel.

Bourbon Cask Reserve was certified in March 2009-and annually thereafter-by Rabbi Padwa of the London Beth Din.
