Rosebank 21 Years Old
 55.3%    |    70cl

Distilled one year before the distillery closed for good, this 21 year old is a very fine example of a distinguished Lowland malt. The seductively sweet, heady and exotic nose contrasts beautifully with the appetising, cleansing, bittersweet dryness of the palate. With a little water, the perfect aperitif.

Rosebank 21 Year Old
Taste the character and craft in every drop.

Region

A distinguished Lowland malt.

Appearance

Bright, pale old gold, attractive. Good beading.

Nose

An enticing soft, sweetness is cut with fresh citrus and tinned lychees, becoming heady and floral, merging layers of orange blossom. Finally, vanilla ice cream, fruit salad, and milk chocolate.

Body

Medium and oily.

Palate

Smooth, cool, clean, fresh and distinctly spicy at natural strength, when the centre palate effect is bittersweet and herbal, giving way to warming rich dark chocolate and peppermint.

Finish

Short, warming and drying, with a last tangy memory of boiled fruit sweets after a fine liquorice sweetness runs under higher notes of menthol and dark, drying cocoa.

Information:

Make: RosebankTM

Age: 21 years old

Strength: 55.3% ABV

Place of Origin: Falkirk

Region: Lowland

Nose:

Immediate and expansive. First an enticing soft, sweetness is cut with citrus-fresh lemon, lime and grapefruit, and tinned lychees; juicy, against a mossy background. This becomes heady and floral, with icing sugar, then merging layers of orange blossom, Turkish delight and crystallised citrus fruits. There’s more freshness to come as orange zest, then vanilla pod ice cream, fruit salad, and milk chocolate. Things become less spicy and more perfumed with water, which brings a more dreamlike floral sweetness; strawberry-scented travel sweets now, dusted with icing sugar.

Palate:

Fresh, clean and appetising. Smooth, cool, clean, fresh - and distinctly spicy at natural strength, when the centre palate effect is bittersweet and herbal. Then, gently warming rich dark chocolate and peppermint introduce a pervasive, appetising dryness. Now an edge appears that is both cleansing and charred, as with scorched pastry. It’s always a refreshingly natural palate, which remains spicy at reduced strength while also now sweeter and sharper, so becoming a fully rounded apéritif.
