Rosebank 1990 (Gordon and MacPhail)
Over the years I've made no bones of hiding my love for the Lowland distillery Rosebank, closed a few years after i turned 18 this triple distilled Lowland lady still holds strings on my heart.
I love the sweet floral, and sometimes chalky, notes from this dram and when theres a chan reasonable priced version i snap it up for drinking.
This 1990 vintage from Gordon and MacPhail, bottled in 2014, became available and i managed to share it with a couple of friends also.
Full of those sweet juicy fruity and floral notes i love from Rosebank, i just wish it was producing whisky, which it might again.
still available to buy from The Whisky Exchange
Oh wow this is fruity, juicy sweet and hints of Edinburgh rock, melon, fresh galia melon, fresh carnations, floral gums and gentle light syrup, fresh fruit salad and some of this little cherries from tinned fruit salad, sweet fruity, juicy, yum
Sweet light syrup, grows and adds edges of oak leaf sauce and fizzy floral gums, sweet fruits, edges of some stronger richer fruits then it comes back to fresh fruit salad and hints of spices.
Sweet juicy moreish
