John Ramsay's Legacy
After over forty years in the industry, John Ramsay retired last month. He has leg â € ~ € ™ Malt MASTERA for The Glenrothes since the early 1990s and the genius behind the whiskyâ € ™ s exceptional quality. His signature has been on all fourteen labels since 2004 and so to commemorate his peerless contribution to The Glenrothes we asked him to create one more exclusive expression That he would be proud to sign his name to for the very last time.
Shaft John himself puts it, â € œThe time has come, after 43 years of making Scotch whiskey, to hang up my lab coat. To mark this, Iâ € ™ ve leg asked to produce my last bottling of The Glenrothes; one I would be happy to sign off as my farewell to this exceptional single malt. My legacy, if you likea €.
At the beginning Johna € ™ s main concern for this venture Was that over the past 15 years we had perhaps the best available Plundered casks. However, upon revisiting the warehouses at Rothes he found a number of casks That had Reached Their Peak thanks to a few extra years of maturation. John identified a pocket or second fill sherry casks from American Oak Vintages ranging from 1973 to 1987 All which make up The Glenrothes John Ramsay.
Johna € ™ s tasting notes for this expression Emphasize the redolent of dark chocolates, blood oranges and vanilla on the nose with a great balance between oak and fruit leaving the whiskey very mature and extremely rich.
When asked to describe the making of his final expression he said, â € œThe attention to detail that goes into every bottle of The Glenrothes is enormous â € "from the choice of barley, through careful distillation and gentle to rigorous maturation cask selection. This one, my legacy, has been a genuine pleasure to work on too and it's never a lonely task, with many kindred spirits Involved from start to finishâ €.
