The final cask chosen for this limited release of just 322 bottles, was personally hand selected by H.S.H Prince Albert, who is a renowned connoisseur of single malts, Honorary Keeper of the Quaich and Honorary President of the Monte Carlo Whisky Society.
The Glenrothes 1992 Dow’s Single Cask, is the second whisky to join The Grimaldi Collection; a selection of rare single cask Scotch malt whiskies handpicked by the Prince.
Commenting on the launch, Ronnie Cox, Brands Heritage Director for The Glenrothes, said: “We are delighted that His Serene Highness Prince Albert selected The Glenrothes for his latest collaboration. The initial 27 casks were shortlisted down to three, and members of the Monte Carlo Whisky Society alongside Prince Albert discussed the merits of each casks highly unusual expression. After considerable debate the Dow’s Port Wood finish cask filled with whisky distilled in 1992 was selected. This cask now becomes only the second bottling to join the The Grimaldi Collection.”
The Glenrothes 1992 Dow’s Single Cask, will be available later this month from La Maison D’Ecosse. RRP (tbc).
