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.

This is a sublime Rosebank, bottled for Diageo's Special Releases. There are just 5886 numbered bottles worldwide. The whisky was aged in refill American oak and refill European oak casks.

Distilled: 1990

Bottled: 2011

53.8% ABV / 70cl

Bottle Number: 4263 / 5,886

Please examine the images of the bottle, packaging and labels carefully and satisfy yourself as to their condition before making a bid.
