How often do you still see whisky distilled in the 1950’s? Not that often we can assure you. Even moreso when it’s an absolutely gorgeous 20 year old Cadenhead dumpy from Glenrothes.
High proof whisky is highly flammable. A fact that Glenrothes distillery has been reminded of on several occasions since their opening in 1879. Fires and explosions on 4 different occasions between 1879 and 1962 contribute to its turbulent history.
