The Glenrothes’ Vintage Reserve Review and Giveaway




Now have I got a lovely giveaway to warm up January.

New The Glenrothes Vintage Reserve has arrived in Waitrose and online.

The bottle to me looks like I would have seen it in paintings of Scottish history centuries ago, but its brand new and Chris loves it so much he said he does not want to share it.

I am not a whisky drinker, so I had to get his review style.

His all time favourite whisky is a well know single malt with a similar start to the name. This had a lot to live up to.

Yet it did, he said its sublime, smooth and tickled his tonsils like an angel, haha, he sometimes is very amusing and tries to review in my style, but gets carried away with daft expressions.

I think you get the idea. He said "It is seriously good"  after I glared at him, this his usual response to something that is better than the norm and trust me if he says that it must be.

The Glenrothes’ Vintage Reserve was first tasted at a Guinness World Record-setting event (the Lord Provost of Glasgow’s Burns’ Night Supper in Jan 2015) but is now finally available nationally in Waitrose and via Ocado, whiskyshop.com and royalmilewhiskies.com.



It’s the latest whisky from the award-winning Single Malt, The Glenrothes - owned by the Queen’s wine and spirit merchants, the 317 year old Berry Bros. and Rudd. 
RRP £39.00 (70cl). 40% ABV. 

I have one bottle to giveaway to two winners from lovely people from The Glenrothes Vintage Reserve.

Just enter the easy peasy rafflecopter below.

Ends 7th January 2016.
