Whisky Reviews for Rosebank 1980 CA

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.32 points

  1. WhiskyLovingPianist scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    N: I started off with metal and sediment [mineral, shingle & iron fillings], before the apple & light melon fruits begin to emerge. There's also a burnt treacle note from over-baked flapjack.
    T: This blend-dense old style malt opens with a delicious and massive abv hit and all the components firing together - a fruity oak tang, thick caramel, dark sweet toasted and burnt qualities along with a complex herbal depth. Then beta carotene, old confectionary and soft wilting cardboard but later on the cleaner malt quality comes through. Lacking the finesse of some other Rosebank's, it's an edgy one, rough and ready.
    F: Chocolate menthol into the finish. The eleven years of oak shows huge commitment with no more cask time required.
    C: Not that I'm any authority, but i think this is great. Blog
