About this single cask Glenrothes
The third release in Spiritfilled's Mythical Beasts series, is a stunning Glenrothes malt from the heart of Speyside. Much like our second Fettercairn release, this single malt has been maturing in the same cask since it's filling. The exciting part is it's a first fill sherry butt. The wonderful golden colour thanks to the sherry influence, has also created a very special flavour - 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.
About Nyami Nyami
The sparkling blue waters of the mighty Spey wind their way through the idyllic Speyside landscape, their depths home to myriad mysteries and myths. Gliding effortlessly through deep waterways, the River God Nyami Nyami radiates benevolence, using his supernatural powers to provide sustenance for his followers, bestowing wealth and good fortune, and protecting them from dark forces in troubled times. Yet there is a poignancy about his solitude; he searches the rivers endlessly, seeking a reunion with his beloved mate. If thwarted, this powerful beast has only to shake his mighty snake-like tail to send tremors through the earth and waves crashing to the riverbank. Smooth, strong and complex, with a sting in the tail, this mythical beast leaves a lasting impression.
