On the palate, lemonade and vanilla stand out dominates the profile. Elderflower also comes forth and balances out the spiciness that may be the result of a triple distillation. Some fresh-made marmalade can also be detected. Unlike many lowlander, this Rosebank is not overwhelmed by its cask maturation.
On the finish, medium to long with notes of citrus and pepper. Digestives also flow through towards the end.
This is a much better Rosebank than the Flora and Fauna 12, but the 25yo Special Release stands to be the best recent Rosebank release.
