Signatory (distilled at Rosebank), 14 year old, 1991 vintage, cask #4755, 43%

Price: $60.00 Issue: Spring 2007 Reviewer: John Hansell

Delicately floral (lavender, rose) and perfumed, with notes of chamomile, hay, soft vanilla and gentle malt. Creamy and soothing, with a gently dry finish. Lots of depth for a lighter weight whisky. A lovely aperitif. I feel Rosebank is freshest and best when it is young. With the distillery closing in 1993, now’s the time to act, and this is one of the better bottlings I’ve tasted.
