Formerly known as Alba Reserve, we have changed the name 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. Appearance: Pale straw, clear and bright. Bouquet: Fresh, floral, coconut, American oak vanilla. Palate: Soft mellow, creme brulee and berry fruits. Finish: Smooth, sweet, medium length. No box.
