Country: Scotland

Region: Lowlands

Type: Single Malt

Bottler: Distiller

ABV: 43%

Score: 94 Points

Part of Diageo’s Flora & Fauna Series of single malt releases, this Rosebank has a vibrant nose of rose petals, a nice maltiness, brown sugar, honey, and vanilla. The taste starts off creamy at first with a touch of pear candies, while the spices come alive slowly but don’t overwhelm fruity notes of peaches, red apples, and strawberries. The finish is long and fruity with a touch of dried flowers. Excellent! (June, 2024)
