Lowland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Another Rosebank 1991 for the pantheon from our outstanding batch of single casks. This resembles the 16yo that we bottled earlier in 2008, with a bit more emphasis on the spices this time.

Tasting Notes:
Tasting Notes by TF

N: Distilled on the same day as the superb 16yo that we bottled 6 months ago, this is slightly darker in colour than its sister, and the nose reflects this, being slightly richer but still along the same lines of rich marmalade and sweet ginger aromas, with hay and pot-pourri also in evidence again, particularly with water. A delight.

P:  Medium-full, again very similar to the 16yo, but earthier and heavier, with a bigger emphasis on the oaky, peppery spices.  The dried orange peel and heather honey flavours are very evident again, though there is perhaps more citrus here.  Water brings forward the honey and oak.

F:  Long and warming when neat, with very impressive length and concentration.  The pepper and spices linger longest, with a faint saltiness revealing itself at the death.

C:  It's been fascinating tasting these casks as they mature into fully-fledged beauties.  The shame is that we'll never get a batch of casks of this quality again from this deeply-missed distillery, nor probably from any other.
