    Rosebank 1981 (43%, Daily Dram 2006)

    Nose: classic Rosebank lemons. Tangerines and other citrus fruits. Juicy pears. Really fresh. Buttercups. Some tropical notes as well: passion fruit, pineapple. Buttercups. After a while, there’s a peaty note in the background. That’s not completely uncommon for old Rosebank (Rosebank 25yo OB also has some). Develops on slightly grassy, waxy and minty notes. Fruit tea. Mouth: fruity (oranges) but slightly sour at the same time. Lots of (pink) grapefruit and green tea. Apple. Hints of cloves. Finish: medium length, on lemon candy and tangerine.

    Impressive, certainly because other distilleries generally need more years to develop a similar profile. It shares similar elements with old Clynelish or some 30-40 year-old Longmorns. Not available any more.

    Score: 89/100

    Rosebank 1981/2006, 43%, Daily Dram
    Very fruity nose: pear, white peach, apple, citrus ... Calvados. Sour sweet apples. Some floral keys. A vague spiciness. In my review I noticed a little peat, I did not have that here now. A hint of it on the taste. Besides the many fruits. Not really complex this Rosebank, without the fruit is not that much, but so very tasty. 88/100 http://onversneden.com/2011/05/21/intermezzo-fulldram-supertasting/
