It doesn’t get much rarer than this. One bottle only to sell of a much anticipated Rosebank. It’s the Wm Cadenhead 175th Anniversary celebration edition, distilled 1991 and bottled in 2017 after maturation in a single ex Bourbon cask. The total outturn was just 192 bottles. A serious collector’s opportunity, and going by the tasting notes, true to the historical style – floral and elegant. Compare this to the selling price of the Flora & Fauna 12 Year Old (just one example), and this is an utterly compelling Rosebank.

According to the bottlers, expect aromas and flavours of strawberry jam, vanilla, satsumas and candy floss flow around the aroma, with lychee, raspberry ripple ice cream and juicy mangoes on the palate. This continues with fennel, mint leaves and faint chocolate notes, leading to white pepper, unripe bananas and vanilla.

Other reviews… From the Old Man Of Huy's blog, "nose: so many flowers and perfume. This smells of gentleness and distinction. Mouth: peach and buttery apricot jam, melted white chocolate. Finish: flowery and balanced, with lots of grapes and orchard fruit. Superlative. 9/10."
