Rosebank 15 Year Old (Bottled 1980s)
A very interesting Rosebank that i just couldn't walk past at all. I bought a dram of this in the brilliant Usquabae Bar in Edinburghs West End.
Bottled in the 1980's for, I believe, the Italian market, this dram is nothing like some of the more recent chalky Rosebanks it's much lighter, more floral and definitely showing why the Lowland Ladies name was given to drams from this region.
An exceptionally tasty dram sweet, sugary, candied fruits, this is the reason i chase down Rosebanks and has reinvigorated my interest in them.
Try the Usquabae Bar in Edinburghs West End for a dram of this (approx £25) or head over to The Whisky Exchange to buy this by the bottle.
interestingly sweet and sugary, gentle fresh light vanilla and fruity juicy tinned fruits, hints of floral notes but still very fresh, tasty fresh juicy figs
sweet, fresh, candied fruits, juicy fresh oranges and lemons, fragrant and floral, but not that Violet Perfume that many dislike, sweet and juicy, gum, linseed oil , fresh yummy melon and fresh fruit salad
fresh fruity juicy fruit chewing gum, lovely soft but warm finish
