Dark molasses smoothly sails as sticky stewed fruits and vanilla cream emerge for a soaring expression.

The horizon dissolves into a rich palette of deep burgundy and shades of dark plum. Against this swirling backdrop of stunning colours, an elegant kite twists and turns on its magical way. Built on centuries of a craft that pairs wonder and simplicity, these immaculate folds of delicate paper ride the wind towards the clouds. Paper, wood, string, and a touch of alchemy sends the kite maker’s creation soaring.
At Roseisle distillery, whisky making is a masterful merging of simple elements to create a stunning single malt that soars with profound flavours. Notes of Sweet vanilla smoothly sail through this lofty expression, from which rise deep, luscious flavour notes of rich, sticky stewed fruits.
Mellow, with some prickle, the aroma is lush. Rich in promise, with light hints of vanilla, yet also complex and tightly integrated. The sweet vanilla aroma increases; beneath lie notes of ripe fruit and white chocolate. Smoothly creamy in texture, the taste is rich and sweet, with rising notes of fruit and spiciness that bring a balancing warm complexity to lift the taste toward the rich, long finish.
On the mellow nose, the overall impression is ‘lush', which is to say rich in promise, with the light sweetness of vanilla, a touch of molasses and some cereal, yet also complex and wellintegrated, with fruity and nutty notes to explore. The top notes suggest a light vanilla sponge with butter icing; this aroma increases in the development; hints of ripe peach and white chocolate lie beneath. All of these notes are subtle and reserved.
Smoothly creamy in texture and sweet to taste, with vanilla icing, before a spicier complexity brings balancing richness. There are more notes of vanilla midpalate, soaring above a deep fruitiness, and the sweetness lasts throughout. Very appealing to drink, both straight and with a dash of water, which softens and sweetens it.
Long, finishing richly sweet and lightly spicy, with a touch of white pepper. A dash of water enhances the sweetness.
