What makes Rosebank stand out from its Scotch brethren? Its departure from the typical double-distillation method used all around Scotland. See, Rosebank distillery was known for using the traditional Lowland style of triple-distillation. Right off the bat, you know you’re in for something a wee bit different.

Now, bottles from Rosebank are in high demand. Why? Well, partly because the distillery was mothballed in 1993. This is some rare juice, to say the least.

Aged for 22 years, this Rosebank from the Rare Malts Selection was bottled in 2003 at natural cask strength. Limited edition bottle number 4564 is a gem that shouldn't be missed by any Malthead.

 

*This bottle is a collector's item, we will not be able to entertain any refunds or exchanges.

Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
