A Diageo Special Release of Rosebank single malt Scotch whisky, distilled in 1992, a year before the Lowlands distillery closed. Matured in refill American oak casks and bottled for the 2014 Special Releases with an outturn of 4,530 bottles.
Nose: There are floral notes, as is to be expected, but they're of the orange citrus variety here. There's a 'window thrown open (by a meadow)' freshness, lychee, grapefruit, and some faint, gentle spice and malt.
Palate: Grapefruit turkish delight with all the powder, light sponge cake, marshmallow and more delicate but flavoursome floral notes.
Finish: Drying, with some well-measured oakiness becoming prominent for the first time.
Overall: Elegant was the word on everyone's lips at the launch. A classic, slightly fruity, Rosebank.
