  1. Cubey666 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    always interesting to taste a Rosebank, this one is a bit hard and unbalanced to my taste.

  2. St. Pauli scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Not in balance. Maybe Rosebank is difficult to nurture (to age in casks). Here it seems that the wood had a bad impact on the spirit, mainly yielding bitter spicy notes. Water helps but flattens the whisky also.

      Very mineral, almost like limestone. Further it's perfumed as Rosebank can be, with citrus and barley.

      A bit astringent on spices (pepper, ginger). It masks the other tastes that may be there. Water helps a bit, but it also seems to flatten the taste a bit. There is rose essence, grapefruit, icing sugar and barley.

      Short and quite much on icing sugar and bubble gum.
