First Impression: Rosebank Cask No. 2112

[46.0%・18 Years Old・Distilled in 1991・Bottled in 2009・Gordon and MacPhail Bottling・Cask No. 2112・Single Cask Release]

Nose:

Ahhh, this is a fruit bomb, very jammy and absolutely gorgeous.  Caramel and fruit bouquet intertwining together to present a clean landscape, the subtle oak influence elevates the nose with the hint of charred oak going really well with the vanilla and star fruits.

Palate & Finish:

Clean and vibrant with an enchanting juiciness, crisp pears and elderflower, exceptionally delicious and mesmerising as the marvellous flavours are joined by coconut cream and fresh oranges.

The finish is subtle but shows finesse, the wee cask influence, chiefly of milk chocolate and lime twists, joins the chorus.

Thoughts:

What a wonderful dram, a classic fruity Rosebank, this one is sorely missed in particular.
