Nose of pure, rich malt with a pinch of dried fruit.  The palate is also malt forward with sweet grassy notes, fruit cocktail syrup and perhaps just a touch of sherry or sweet wine.  The finish is sweet and malty with fruit.  Really enjoyable and wonderfully drinkable.

Nose is generally light. Floral, grassy, herbal. Hay. Notes of bay leaves. Meadow scents. With bready stuff, French nougat, oatmeal, animal feed. As it opens up, cotton candy and subtle spices.

The palate is surprising given the nose (or perhaps not), and really packs in the flavor. A big rush of green herbal stuff, mild but tasty spices -- a sort of cinnamon-Indian thing. Fleeting strawberry. Light caramel. This all goes into the very long finish with the spices growing more complex, and something like lemon-lime peeking in.

A great malt with surprises, atypical and a good cask choice.  B+/A-

n:  Pleasant, sort of a just mowed the lawn in Autumn smell.  Trail mix and hay.

 

p: Hey, nice.  Rosebanky.  I love Rosebank.  There's a lot of sweet fruit up front, probably leaning strawberry.  It's clear but bery manageable.  Actually everything about this is manageable.  You hardly notice the alcohol which is great because it would hide all the cool subtleties.  Perhaps a little mint.  This is the "happy little trees" of scotch.  I think I could give this to anyone.

 

B+/A-

This is light one.  Good amount of maltiness in the nose with hay, citrus and tea like qualities.  Gets more oily on the palate with licorice and burnt toast.  Finishes with a bit of fruit.
