"1 - 100ml bottle of each: Bourbon cask, Vintage Reserve, Sherry Cask Reserve
Bourbon Cask: 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.
Vintage Reserve: The combination of different Vintages aged in a variety of casks creates a balance of mature experience and vibrant youth. The oldest constituent brings mellow oak and dried fruits; the greatest proportion adds soft, mature, sweet vanilla; the more youthful add exuberance and lemon citrus, creating a sharp and uplifting taste.
Sherry Cask Reserve:There are many factors we consider in determining an expression worthy of bottling and sharing with you. Of course, we've always been proud of the fact that we have our sherry casks made to specification in Jerez, southern Spain even though it costs around five times as much as American ex-bourbon equivalents. Now, we can offer you the chance to sample, without distraction, the unique dried fruit and resinous character that underpins the sherry top notes for which these casks are famed."
