Other distilleries have released vintages and special bottlings, of course, but as far as I know this is the only distillery to release vintages exclusively. Kudos to Glenrothes for being well ahead of the curve!

At a nice spot near a small lake we took a rest. I sat on a big pile of timber, and took out my small hipflask. And my Glencairn glass.
Then I poured the Laphroaig CS and enjoyed it very much. There were much more in the nose than usual, or maybe our senses are sharpened when outside. I even detected some chewing tobacco I hadn't smelled since my childhood, when the elder people had that habbit.
Ummm - that's life
