Rosebank Distillery (Closed 1993)
Straight down the middle of the palate. A nice drink.
1991, Aged 11 Years, Sherry Finish
Nose: Fresh and appetising if slightly hard to get at. Pear drops, lemon leaf and a hint of smoke.
Palate: Very soft and light. Reminds me, somehow, of fern cakes. Light and lemony.
Finish: Light and soft.
Comment: Straight down the middle of the palate. A nice drink.
Nose: Floral and fruity. Bluebells. Pears poached in vanilla syrup. Exotic wood. Toasted bread.
Palate: Flowery. Chocolate toffee. Coconut. Burnt cream. Sandalwood.
Finish: Quite delicate, crisp and dry, vanishing on a bitter note. Walnut peel.
Comment: An attractive medium-bodied Rosebank. The sherry finish has added complexity to delicacy. Some exotic notes which makes it really appetising.
