Lot number: 066-2712

Described as a "grievous loss" by Michael Jackson, the triple-distilled Rosebank is regarded by many as the best of the Lowland single malts. Closed in 1993, its site on the Forth & Clyde canal and relatively low production levels meant that it did not compare favourably with the much larger and picturesque Glenkinchie. It has been mourned by whisky aficionados ever since who miss its floral and aromatic style.

Founded in 1895, Gordon & MacPhail has been bottling single malt whiskies for 120 years and by the 1950s it held the largest range of bottled malt whiskies in the world. This family-run business has bottled the oldest single malt whisky in the world as well as being a distiller itself after buying Benromach in 1993.

Distilled: 1990

Bottled: 2014

46% ABV / 70cl
