Tasting Notes

Nose

Horribly unbalanced mixture of new make and sappy oak. The malt is merely incidental.

Palate

Sweet, malty and, er, that's it .

Finish

Almost sickly sweet. The oak remains off-key.

Comment

The label quotes my devotion to Rosebank at 8 years. I'm not devoted to it in this form. The cask this malt was filled into must have been exhausted as the whisky is closer to a 2 Years Old in character. The only good point is that there are no off notes.
