Rosebank 1990 21 Years - Diageo Special Release



Only the second official Rosebank since the demise of the Rare Malts series, this 21yo was distilled in 1990 and has been vatted from refill American and European casks. Lighter in style than 2007's officially-bottled 25yo, in a strong field this was another of the hits of 2011's Special Releases.


The bottling is comprised of whisky matured in refull American oak and refill European oak casks. Floral and mildly herbal on the nose, with cereal and tropical fruit notes, along with a hint of damp soil. The palate is somewhat tart, with oranges and pepper, while the finish dries to coffee and spicy oak. A lovely example of a much-mourned malt. 89 Points.
