Everyone's (at least everyone who works at K&L) favorite Speyside producer is back, just in time to impact the torrential holiday shopping season. This year's sampling has culled the terrific 1985 and 1991 vintage distillations, along with the always superb select reserve blend, in the cutest miniature versions of their unique and atavistic whisky bottles. For those disconsolate souls keening about the lack of fun and inexpensive gifts for the truest of single malt drinkers, you are bereft no longer. The Glenrothes is a tried and tested ballast in the Scotch whisky world; a florid and elegant malt that never fails to deliver the goods with any of its bottlings. For $29.99, it's far more exciting than a 750ml bottle of a comparable price and it's a great way to try out the 1985 before committing to a long-term relationship with it (I've long been married to it - no need for commiseration, it's a great romance).
