Whisky Reviews for Rosebank 1991 GM
7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.40 points
- The listed price of almost £400 must be highly inflated, way over what I paid.
- A delicate and mellow lowland that I enjoy more and more by each glass.
Sweet and gentle floral nose. First thing that is most striking to me is tangerines. Glazed banana cake. Cereals. Malt grows with time in the glass.
I find more malt on the initial taste than on the nose. Evolves into grassy notes. A very good mix of fruits that's so well mixed that I find it hard to separate them.
A good medium lenght, slightly drying with noticable oak.
- This was a sample courtesy of Peatbogger . I have had a Rosebank before , The Flora and fauna bottling so this was a pleasant revisit to this lost distillery .
- I had this to say goodbye to the old year and say hello to the new . Also raised it to absent friends , the perfect dram for the occasion .
Malted barley , pear drops , banana sandwiches , tangerine , really pleasant and full of nostalgic things I can't quite put my finger on .
Again the pear drops sweets , some fruit like ripe melon , peeled apple and apricots . This is a well balanced dram and it stays together nicely .
A lovely medium floral finish with dolly mixtures on the death .
- Distilled in March 1991, bottled in April 2007. So a 16-year-old. But for some reason the site administrators refuse to put an age statement since the age is not specifically mentioned on the bottle... Tasted 20/04/2016 in a line-up of closed distilleries.
Malty, very floral, some faint marzipan sweetness and mango.
Malty again with some grassiness. Orange/tangerine, faint butterscotch (but it's diluted too much to be enjoyed completely), anise.
Mediumshort, a bit disappointing actually, with anise coming to the fore, almost menthol.

Bottler: Gordon & MacPhail (CC)
Expansion: Refill Sherry Hogshead
Region: Lowlands, Scotland Special feature: closed in 1993, is becoming increasingly rare! Nose: Light and mildly fruity, grassy. Aromas of flowering meadow appear, followed by citrus fruits. Grapefruit and limes. This first impression is paired with sweet notes of malt and wheat. Palate: Malty and sweet, lots of cereals and grassy aromas. The citrus fruits return. The oak is not yet deep, but noticeable with a slightly bitter spice. Overall easy and tasty. Finish: Medium to long, very dry and a lot of grain. The citrus fruit is now almost gone, malt and oak for it all the stronger. Conclusion: Mild and pleasant, a typical single malt from the Lowlands. Unfortunately only a little complex. 82/100 points (tasted 2015 - in auctions about 250 €)
