Nose: An intensely floral nose, with huge notes of Parma violets, rose petals and just a hint of lavender. There’s also just a touch of bicarbonate of soda (not a bad thing) alongside oodles of sweetness.
Palate: Just as the nose suggests, those Parma violet notes take the fore. There’s some rather pleasing notes of bramble leaves, toffee apple and cranberry, as well as a little kiwi and pine sap.
Finish: It finishes beautifully with potpourri, liquorice, lemon sherbet and (and this really is going to sound bad, but it’s really not a bad thing, honest)… …detergent. It was difficult to even type that, but there genuinely is just a hint of it, and it’s very, very interesting.
Overall: One of the most floral Rosebanks ever released, and that’s saying something.
