There`s sure to be a few glasses risen to The Glenrothes Malt Master, John Ramsay as he retires this month. In respect and memory for all his hard work, Mr Ramsay has had a limited edition bottle of the finest single malt named after him.
His final gift to The Glenrothes, the John Ramsay Legacy bottling is a non-Vintage selection of 30 casks personally chosen by John to create an impressive single malt in celebration of his longstanding relationship with the Speyside distillery. The casks are all 2nd fill American Oak sherry casks from Vintages ranging from 1973 to 1987.
The flavours are said to be aromas of spice, blood orange and vanilla, with a rich palate of fruit and mango coupled with a long, mature unmistakably American oak finish. Only 100 bottles of this Legacy bottling (46.7% abv) are available in the UK at a price of £699.
Each 70cl bottle of the John Ramsay Legacy limited edition is individually numbered and beautifully presented in a bespoke oak box designed to showcase the rare single malt. A booklet scripted by John Ramsay, including tasting notes, is also kept in a hidden drawer at the base of the box.
