Embodying Excellence

Malcolm Rennie, Distillery Manager, expressed pride in Rosebank’s latest creation, hailing it as a testament to the distillery’s legacy and a beacon of the future. 

“It not only marks the final expression in our first legacy series, but also symbolises a new era for Rosebank, as we prepare to open the doors of our revived distillery.”

Tasting Profile

Crafted from limited casks retained for over three decades, the Rosebank 32-year-old offers a symphony of flavours, with sweet aromas of pineapple and candied ginger mingling with lemon and marzipan with hints of white pepper and café latte. 

These give way to a velvety mouthfeel of hints of malt, thyme, butterscotch, tropical fruits, drying oak and softly warming spice. This is followed by a soft, lingering finish of notes of lemon, honeyed porridge and toasted walnut.

With this release, Rosebank introduces Near-Field Communication (NFC) technology tags on every bottle of the 32-year-old expression. This innovative feature allows consumers to delve deeper into the whisky’s story through their smartphone, offering:
