With the prices of almost all single malt whisky brands increasing by $2 every few months, it's rare to see a brand actually going down in price. But the new owners of Glenrothes (Berry Bros & Rudd, the K&L of London) want to get competitive with their new label and we've been able to bring the select reserve down to sub-$40. Many of us at K&L cut our teeth on this malt. It's soft and supple due to the sherry aging, and easy to drink. It's a huge step up over Glenlivet 12, but not as expensive as say Macallan 12. For an everyday sipper, it's pleasant and simple, hitting all the right sweet spots. It's Scotch that tastes like Scotch for people who like Scotch and it's a very fair price.
