Whisky Reviews for Rosebank 1992

10 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.04 points

  1. Slàinte Mhath scored this whisky 91 points Administrator

    Closed in 1993 and soon to be revived by Ian Macleod, Rosebank remains one of Scotland's most iconic distilleries. This 21-year-old Special Release was matured in refill American oak and bottled at 55.3% ABV (bottle no. 3579). Biscuity and cereal-driven, the aroma unfolds with citrus cream, pears and a lovely herbal complexity. On the palate, floral and slightly bitter notes intermingle with parsley, barley sugar and a touch of mojito. Minty freshness and lemon zest mark the clean and very elegant finish. A much missed Lowlander with unrivaled character!

    RATING: 4.5/5.0 stars ≙ 91 pts → SUPERB

    Just as good as Glenlivet 21, no more. Wow guys you are really overrating hyped and expensive whiskies on WB. This is not a really good one and if the relationship between rate and price is positively linear, we don't need notes anymore.
    • Nose
      Vanilla, jasmine, sourdough, honey, pear
    • Taste
      pretty like a fruit yoghurt, honey, flower tea, sourdough, lemon, fruit candies, oak & malt
    • Finish
      medium length with malt, honey & flower

  3. lincolnimp scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Neat I was surprised at how light & fizzy this was, it was no surprise that this offering was a good whisky

  4. ctu scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Unusually powerful character from a triple distilled lowlander, but it's fine.
    • Nose
      Floral. Vanilla, citruses, honey and pear.
    • Taste
      Spicy. Citruses, honey, mixed fruit jam, pineapple, malt, pepper and oak.
    • Finish
      Long, creamy, fruity, spicy.

  5. jazzpianofingers did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    2015

    N: Dense, creamy and floral. ‘Nice’

    T: One of those generally good ‘whisky’ whiskies if a little brash

    F: All good but fades fast.

    C: Good standard malt, but one that may have passed me by had it not been a Rosebank.

    Scores a B- [85]

    2016:Tried this last year and though it good but no more. After hearing better things of it, i decided this late 1992 vintage was worth a revisit.
    N: Malty-putty, sour mash like the previous Millstone but then opening with notes of cheesecake and some vanilla ice-cream. Theres a subtle complexity throughout.
    T: Sugary>lime=citrus, peppery distillate malt.
    F: Long finish includes more sour mash that seems identical to the Bushmills 

    21yo WB i had previously. So confident was i of their similarity that i took the Rosebank to the [TWE Show] Bushmills stand [much to their delight], to compare them both direct - and the similarities were very fair indeed.
    C: A lovely [Bushmills-esque] whisk[e]y with a subtle depth & complexity. Much preferred this, this year.

    Scores a B[+] [88]

  6. bakerman scored this whisky 88 points Specialist

  8. tomkandy scored this whisky 93 points Member Junior

    In part, exactly what you'd expect from a Rosebank - high aromatic perfume notes of the sort that you just don't see in modern
    lowlanders. And yet, there was a substantial savoury flavour there contributing unexpected depth.
    • Nose
      FWP, rosewater, pears, toothpaste
    • Taste
      Sweet and savoury, chicken korma, pineapple cubes, cherryade

  9. Koloman did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    "Becoming sweeter and sharper with a little water" (Official Tasting Notes).
    • Nose
      "Soft, sweet aromas of juicy citrus fruit on the nose give way to a heady, rose-scented, floral character." (Official Tasting Notes)
    • Taste
      "The palate is spicy, clean and fresh" (Official Tasting Notes).
    • Finish
      "A last tangy memory of fruit sweets appears in the warming, drying finish" (Official Tasting Notes).

  10. Koloman did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    This is the only third original special bottling ("Special Release" or "Limited Edition") from the Rosebank distillery closed in 1993; the older bottlings of this series are: 1. 1981/2007 (25yo): http://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/632/rosebank-25-year-old 2. 1990/2011 (21yo): http://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/26177/rosebank-1990
