Whisky Reviews for Rosebank 25-year-old

11 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.38 points

  1. Allandale scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    A lovely example of Rosebank.
    • Nose
      A more sleek, and muscular Rosebank than you expect. Smell of extra virgin olive oil along  with supple soft fruit,maple syrup , some banana and what seems to be a smoky edge.
    • Taste
      Old books, almond and more of a grapefruit-like edginess. The oils helps  to anchor the more slightly elements  but it seems  to be just a little fragile. This is borne out when water is added where a needly edge comes through that could be acidity and citrus breaking free.
    • Finish
      Long aftertaste with lemon  touches. Rather complex.

  2. recursiewhisky scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    An interesting whisky, however, because of the hype surrounding this distillery, the price-quality ratio is completely lost. The high alcohol percentage is a bit overwhelming at the first sip, but that still weakens quickly and then the whisky gets a nice oily mouth feeling.
    http://www.worldwhisky.nl/recognition-300-rosebank-1981-25-year/
    • Nose
      A fresh, soft (but with strong alcohol), balanced whisky with notes of sawdust, dusty, old books, wet leaves, almonds, grass, banana, hay, straw, cardboard, hint of smoke, lemon peel, vanilla, wax, oak, butterscotch, clove, white pepper, white wine, tobacco, solvent, floral notes, ginger, melon, earthy notes, fresh fruit, honey and cinnamon.
    • Taste
      A soft, spicy, fruity, floral and balanced whisky with notes of spicy oak, white pepper, a hint of chilli, a hint of smoke, a view of bitter tannin, grass, orange, lemon zest, marzipan, pears, pear candies, fresh figs ?, acacia honey, wet forest soil, soft chocolate, roses, vanilla, slightly sour notes, grains, freshly sawn pine and powdered sugar.
    • Finish
      A long and dry aftertaste with notes of white pepper, chili, floral notes, earthy notes, soft citrus, necessary oak, vanilla, freshly baked cookies and tannins.

  3. thijs100 scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    A very, very good Rosebank.
    • Nose
      Very dusty at first, with damp wood, wet leafs and mushrooms. Also almonds. Next up we get the more classic Lowland-grassy notes with straw and hay. All of this goes accompanied by a nice hint of smoke.
    • Taste
      Zesty and salty with subtle peat smoke. Also white pepper. The palate is fairly dry and spicy with lemon and orange and plenty of grassy aspects. A pretty smooth whisky in spite of its extreme percentage of alcohol.
    • Finish
      Vanilla, pepper, pineapple and subtle peat. Very long.

    Tasting Notes by TF
    Nose: Waxy, sweet; plenty of
    forward oak, sweet orange, some butterscotch, fudge, spices (clove). 
    Big, powerful alcoholic prickle.  Rye bread, some wine-like
    characteristics.  Floral notes eventually fight their way through, along
    with gingered melon.  With water, becomes more biscuity and develops
    honey notes.
    Palate: Big oak surge, then the alcohol - oily with immense hot
    pepper and spice (clove, chilli seeds).  Very full and oily.  As the
    initial alcohol burn dies away, amazing polished malt comes through to
    spar with the spices.  Delicious.
    Finish:  Lovely unctuous malt continues to envelop the tastebuds. 
    The length is phenomenal.  The clove and cracked black peppercorns have
    the last word. (TWE)

  10. Sonett scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Nose of vanilla, herbs, lemon peel, wax and some oak
    • Taste
      Enters sweet, rapidly going towards peppery spices and an oaky taste.
    • Finish
      Medium to long dominated by spices moving to a vanilla sweetness mixed with oak and bitter almonds
