Rosebank 14 Year Old The Ultimate Cask 4766 (Van Wees) Review

Rosebank 14 Year Old The Ultimate Cask 4766 (Van Wees) Thanks to Jason of Malt Review, for a small sample of this tasty single cask Rosebank.

Interesting dram, there's a definite spike of peppery heat in here, but it eases with a touch of water, lots of sweet grape juices, lemon Bon Bon notes, and crushed carnations, this is quite harsh without water but eases and sweetens with a touch of water.

With a few drops of water this is just the right type of juicy Rosebank I want to drink on a daily basis, I really wish I could drink Rosebank every day and this would be a good one to have.

I'm off to hunt for more bottles of Rosebank to try.

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

Quite a hard initial spike of alcohol, then rose water, lemon Bon bons, chalky Edinburgh rock, definite floral notes, crushed carnations especially, then waxy vanilla pods, waxy pickled lemons and crushed lemongrass.

Palate

Sweet, juicy rosewater and fruit gums, lemon bon bons, quite hot with edges of cinnamon and pepper with bitter lemon pith, hints of buttered toast and talcum powder, sweet grape juice

Finish

Sweet, becomes sweeter with every sip
