Glenrothes 15 Year Old, Double Award Winning

Spiritfilled Mythical Beasts Glenrothes 15 Year Old

Mythical Beasts Glenrothes Nyami, Nyami 15 Year Old is a stunning single malt from the heart of Speyside. This Scotch has been maturing in the same cask since its filling: a first fill sherry butt. As well as creating a wonderful golden colour, the sherry influence has also created a very special flavour. This is enhanced by the traditional Glenrothes profile. With a limited number of 588 bottles from this cask at 55% ABV, it's a beautiful addition to our collection.

We're incredibly proud of this release. And we're delighted to have won two awards.

The Drinks Business and Spirit Business Spring 2022 Award, Gold, in the Scotch Whisky Single Malt category

The second of the Spirits Business annual blind tasting competition saw our Glenrothes 15 year old win its second award. It stormed ahead of the competition and was highlighted by the Judges as 'best in class'.

Emilia Wrelton, whisky single malt panel judge, highlighted that Glenrothes 15 year old was the standout in the category. She said: "it was distinguished among the others; it had a very good profile- treacle-like and woody."

Mythical Beasts Nyami, Nyami Tasting Notes

Nose: Rich apricot and orange marmalade extend with Brazil nuts. Then vanilla and lemon meringue appear, with a burst of maltiness and oak providing a spine.

Palate: Soft, rich mouthfeel. Concentrated flavours embrace each other, apricots, apricot jam, juicy lemon freshness and indulgent orange marmalade. Gingerbread emerges and maltiness grows backed up by oak and underlying toasted notes, with a luscious finale of fruit compote and nutmeg.

Finish: Tangy dryness grows with malty, oak notes, culminating in orange marmalade underlined by dryness.

Tasting notes for each expression are written by Ian Wisniewski, Spirits Writer and Broadcaster.
