Highly enjoyable with great layers of complexity.
25 Years Old
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: A whiff of smoke under apples, pears and a hint of shortcrust pastry. Develops a little coffee after\ra while .
Palate: Very firm alcohol hit but not the burning variety. Good mouthfeel. Water opens up more fruits and\rthe smoke still lingers.
Finish: Very long and pleasing.
Comment: Highly enjoyable with great layers of complexity.
Nose: Seems mature. Surprisingly little nose burn for such a high-strength bottling. Firm with ripe fruits,fragrant\rwood,a touch of violet,overripe banana,Assam tea.There's smoke at work here as well
Palate: Sweet start. Good oily feel with layers of concentrated flavour. Deep and mellow fruitfulness.
Comment: Fuller than you normally get from Rosebank,but no worse for that. Highly recommended.
