  1. GlenSikkes did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 217 bottles from cask 2051
    Rosebank was always considered by connoisseurs to be the best of the Lowland malts; in spite of this great reputation the distillery was closed in 1993. This is a superb example of the make. Deep gold in colour (it is drawn from a refill American oak hogshead), the nose is rich, sweet and fruity. We detected moist lemon sponge, Madeira cake; syrupy tinned peaches and juicy oranges. Fragrant and summery – herb gardens and freshly laundered frocks. The last comes through as lemon washing up liquid even lemon-grass, when water is added, and there are traces of silver polish and Caramac. The flavour is ‘palate cleansing’: soft and sweet, with crisp acidity and still some lemon-grass. A very short finish, as one would expect from this malt. Drink as an aperitif, or chilled, with fish!
