Character Goatson
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.

Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
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.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
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).
