  1. WhiskyLovingPianist scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    N: Light they [Rosebank fans] say - light it is! It’s a malt-cereal-wash with a refined presentation, full of grace and charm, or a malty-grappa with a thinness,... with weight - I guess sublime will have to do it, it's sublime.
    T: Ooh very nice, a delicate ‘wow’ with a superb delicacy, that’s from the mouthfeel too. Either I’m a little tipsy [of course i am], or I'm starting to understand what all the fuss is/was about regarding Rosebank - rather late to the party I know. The development is one full of hints & suggestions without ever committing - transient indeed. This is all about the spirit, the oak merely serves,... and boy does it serve. Now theres a light-sweet touch with a trickle of barley-sugar turning even sweeter into the finish.
    F: (Light) chocolate malt,... quick fade,..... a light yet sustained finish with some copper notes.
    C: An incredible lightness - how do [did] Rosebank make a 9yo so elegant? This captures the best qualities of young delicate malt spirit, using the casks merely to tame, to shape, to refine, to temper - but it's some spirit to start with. Is this the best naked barley spirit can be? Sublime simplicity.

    Scores a B-

    With the Rosebank coming to an end in my glass, I further peruse the fabulous spectacle that is the Dornoch bar wandering what to order next, then there it was. I could never have imagined in a million years, being in a bar and saying,…. WB
