Whisky Reviews for Rosebank 1979 GM

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.80 points

  1. Thermidor scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    A nice sherry touch from a bygone era, but it's got too much water in it.
    Tasted with these Rosebanks: 1989-2013 G&M cask RO/13/03 (83 pts), 22yo 1981-2004 Rare Malts (90), 27yo 1975-2002 DL OMC (87), and 34yo 1940s-1970s George Strachan 70 proof (88).
    • Nose
      First some completely dried out bouillons. Then champagne that's lost its bubbles, and some faint spices and varnished wood. Smells a bit watery.
    • Taste
      A round profile with a watered down, yet still quite rich, spicy sherry bite that's very different than contemporary sherry casks.
    • Finish
      Slightly dry, with faint sherry oak. Here you really feel the 40%, sadly.

      Simple and ultra-fresh, fittingly summery. Oranges including squash and sweets, some apple juice and just the faintest hints of oak. Maybe also strawberries, even a little fresh mint.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Light but zesty, very fruity. It’s fruit juice with just a little vanilla. Oranges, green apples, a little vanilla fudge.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Short but clean. Traces of salt, and a little bubble-gum in the aftertaste.
