  1. lincolnimp did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    PLEASE CAN WE STOP POSTING NOTES BY SERGE VALENTIN FROM WHISKYFUN.

    EVERYONE ON THIS FORUM KNOWS WHERE WHISKYFUN IS,

    WHEN YOU CLICK THE EXPLORE TAB THEN REVIEWS AND NOTES TAB FOR THE LAST 25 TASTING/REVIEW NOTES IT IS FULL OF SERGE VALENTIN, I THINK HE IS REALLY GOOD, BUT THE SITE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE FOR MEMBERS TASTING NOTES I BELIEVE?

    THESE REVIEW NOTES BY SERGE ARE AVAILABLE ELSEWHERE AND OLD NOTES, THE SITE NEEDS NEW NOTES.

    Rosebank
    15 yo 1990/2006 (59.5%, Blackadder
    Raw Cask, Hogshead #1522, 294 bottles)

    Colour; straw. Nose: less talkative
    and a little less ‘evident’.
    Grassier, with also nice notes of
    marzipan. Lemony for sure, but less
    so than the ones we just had. With
    water: gets very grassy and also a
    little soapy, even after quite a long
    time (no simple ‘saponification’
    that quickly vanishes after reduction).
    Mouth (neat): a bit harsh, overpowering,
    more acid than lemony I’d say.
    Spirity and very ‘green’.
    With water: gets better this time,
    even good. Creamier, rounder, with
    a better ‘lemony definition’.
    Finish: rather long but slightly caramelly
    this time, and also slightly bitterish.
    Not bad at all but there are better
    Rosebanks I think (and much better
    old Glen Grants at Blackadder’s
    these days... Yummie!) SGP:451
    – 78 points.
