25 Days of Drams - Day 1 - Glenrothes, Sherry Cask Reserve

Happy 1st of December, Dram-Teamers!

If you've not yet caught up with our 25 Days of Drams feature and giveaway, check it out and get involved here.

Now it's legitimately ok to talk about Christmas, we're going to dive straight in to a preview of our first advent dram, which is also the first dram in our "A Very Sherry Whiskymas" Christmas box (spoiler alert!).

Without further ado, let's look at what I think makes the Glenrothes Sherry Cask Reserve special:

Recap: For each day of the 25 (we're Christmas day drammers here at the Dram Team), I'm going to give a few brief reasons I think each dram is worth your time and attention - which are the same reasons I picked each one to be in our boxes in the first place. And, we're giving away the full set of drams:

Reasons why Chris recommends the Glenrothes Sherry Cask Reserve:

Reason 1 - It's a sherry cask dram, and these are a favourite of mine, full of Christmassy flavours like dried fruits, Christmas spice, nuttiness and...well...sherry. All around yum!

Reason 2 - The Glenrothes recently completely revamped their line up, and this, along with all their old expressions, has been retired and is no longer in production. Get it while you can!

Reason 3 - It was the first whisky from Glenrothes to be matured entirely in first-fill sherry casks (i.e. the cask was previously only had sherry in it).
