Rosebank cask 612, bottled by Ian Macleod in September 2008, is a Scottish single malt whisky that was distilled in February 1990 at the Rosebank distillery in Falkirk. Unfortunately, the distillery was closed in 1993, making this whisky a rare and sought-after bottle among whisky enthusiasts.

This particular bottle has matured in a single bourbon hogshead cask and is bottled at an alcohol percentage of 46%. This results in a perfectly balanced whisky that is both complex and approachable.

Upon opening the bottle, a subtle nose emerges with notes of honey, vanilla, and a hint of lemon. It also has a light floral scent with hints of grass and a slight spicy touch.

Upon the first sip, the sweetness of the honey and vanilla is immediately tasted, followed by a fruity taste of peach and apple. It also has a slight spicy touch with notes of pepper and cinnamon, which contribute to the complexity of the whisky. The finish is long and soft with a light smokiness and a subtle hint of oak.

What makes this whisky so special is the perfect balance between the sweetness of the bourbon cask and the floral and fruity notes of the Rosebank distillery. It is a soft and subtle whisky that is perfect to enjoy on a special occasion or to share with friends.

In conclusion, Rosebank cask 612 is a beautiful whisky with an interesting history. It is a must-have for any collector or lover of Scottish single malt whisky.
