Sorry for the long introduction, but I think that a thousand dollar bottle is worth a paragraph at least! What are your thoughts on this whisky? I would appreciate it a ton, my knowledgeable friends. I am your disciple.

From the 1979 Single Casks came 4 different out. (13458, 3808,13466, 13470)
My favorite is Cask 13466
If we are talking about this bottling?
Single Cask 13458
519 Bottles only for USA
The meanings for this Single Cask are diffrent. Example Malt Advocate wrote:
A single cask bottling of The Glenrothes aged in a first fill sherry cask. Only 519 bottles, all destined for the US. It is the richest, chewiest, sweetest, and fruitiest of all the Glenrothes whiskies reviewed here. Deep mahogany color, with notes of toffee apples, waxed fruit, burnt orange, prunes in syrup, and dark chocolate. The intensity of the sherry and length of oak aging gives the whisky a flavourprofile that begins to transcend traditionial whisky flavours, expressing notes of port wine, pot still rum, and rancio
Apperance: deep mahogany
Bouquet: vanilla, dried fruit and oak
Palate: rich ripe fruit flavour, plums and candy apples
Finish: very long sweet citrus finish
