Berry Bros. & Rudd Spirits and U.S. importer Anchor Distilling Company are proud to announce the introduction of The Glenrothes 1992 Vintage Single Malt Whisky, 2nd Edition, arriving in the U.S. this October. Aged 10 years longer than the 1st edition, this new release benefits from extra maturation and bottled at a higher strength of 44.3% ABV for greater intensity and richer character.

In 2004, when the first 1992 vintage was released, then-Glenrothes Malt Master John Ramsay selected the casks he deemed at their best, but left some casks to mature longer. Current Malt Master Gordon Motion has maintained a close eye and nose on the casks and determined that, 10 years later, the 2nd edition of 1992 is ready to enjoy. Non-chill-filtered and natural in color, 1992 Vintage, 2nd Edition, is aged in a mixture of refilled Sherry Butts and American Ex-Bourbon Hogsheads.

“This edition of the 1992 Vintage is definitely an uplifting, conversational style,” says Ronnie Cox, Brand Heritage Director at Berry Bros. & Rudd. “The original 1992 was more formal and austere; here we have a confident, but altogether more ‘come-hither’ expression. This edition is the first Glenrothes vintage comprised entirely of whisky aged in refill casks, allowing the true Glenrothes character to come through.”

“Anchor Distilling is delighted to be able to bring yet another fantastic single malt to discerning American consumers,” says David King, president of Anchor Distilling Company. “The idea that whisky should be bottled at a specific age is once again disproved by this superb example of The Glenrothes which has been bottled at the peak of its maturity. It happens to be 22 years old but that is irrelevant!  Enjoy this beautiful single malt as you would a perfect moment in time.”

Imported by Anchor Distilling Company, The Glenrothes 1992 Vintage Single Malt Whisky, 2nd Edition, will be available in the U.S. at a suggested retail price of $249.99.
