Rosebank Distillery (Closed 1993)
A reminder of a great Lowland malt lost.
The Cooper's Choice
No age statement
Nose: Flowery-fruity. Dry. Camomile. Lemon grass.
Palate: Firm, smooth, lightly creamy. Delicately sweet in the middle. Icing sugar. Wonderfully subtle, complex and teasing. Becoming dry.
Finish: Hint of burnt sugar and sulphur.
Comment: A reminder of a great Lowland malt lost.
Nose: Wonderfully complex with a maltiness punctuated by a series of grassy, spicy and coal-smoky notes. Fabulously delicate.
Palate: Mouth watering at first; a wonderful display of light and heavy malt tones.
Finish: Drying with some soft vanilla-caramel notes.
Comment: A flawless example of the most luscious and complex Lowlander of them all. Should be bottled at least 43% abv, though, to highlight the full complexity.
