Rosebank Distillery (Closed 1993)
A delicate texture releases growing richness, with a sip turning into a rewarding mouthful.
The Wee Dram
Aged 15 Years
Nose: Créme brûlée, violet floral notes, raisins and pear drops, leading to shortbread and a waft of maltiness.
Palate: Rich sweetness, pear drops, baked apples, raisins, and underlying honey.
Finish: Creamy, sweet, malty flourish with a hint of dry oak.
Comment: A delicate texture releases growing richness, with a sip turning into a rewarding mouthful.
Nose: Dry, Lemony. Flowery. Camomile.
Palate: Seemed watery for a moment, then opened to delicate, very light, oiliness. Walnut oil. Perhaps even olive oil. A hint of sweet red peppers. Lightly toasted ciabbata bread.
Finish: Oiliness smooths warming alcohol.
Comment: Once a vamp. Now a trouper. She is a little astringent, but I am blind to her faults. I could fall for her all over again.
