The traditional Lowland method of triple-distillation was used at Rosebank distillery (as opposed 
to the double distillation method that is used almost everywhere in Scotland).
 
Bottles from Rosebank are in high demand, partly due to the fact the distillery was mothballed in May 1993
 
Aged for 20 years this Rosebank from the Rare Malts Selection was bottled in 1999. Limited edition bottle number 546, this was bottled at natural cask strength. Good labeling and very top shoulder level. A gem that shouldn't be missed by any Malthead.

For what was described by the experts as one of the best distilleries in the world, the Rosebank has met an ignonimous end. Sold to British Waterways in 2002, the site is being developed into restaurants and apartments.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
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.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
