Part II of the Rosebank Tasting: Gordon and Macphail’s Connoisseurs Choice 1991 Rosebank

Gordon and Macphail Rosebank

This is the replacement for the former 16 year old Rosebank – I had it but failed to take any notes on it. We felt that this would be a good follow up after the Signatory Vintage bottling because the other three were bottled at cask strength. The one odd thing about the labeling is that the front label states it is bottled at 46% but the label on the back states 43%. I thought it felt like 46% but snooping around the internet it appears that 43% is the true value.

Color – Light yellow

Nose – Sugar cookie sweetness, bread dough, heather

Palate – Oak-dryness, the flowers make themselves present, subtle sweetness, big up front but fades away rather quickly

Finish – floral, malty and doughy.

This is another relaxing dram. Something to sit back and enjoy. It is not going to over power you or make you work hard for it.
