Since both distilleries are largely gone now my fantasy answer would be St. Magdalene/Linlithgow. A distillery with a lot of history behind it. It's on the grounds that was once a leper colony in the 12th century later turned convent, turned hospital till turning into a distillery in the mid-1700's (you gotta love the Scots!) on the railway between Glasgow and Edinburgh. Turning it into a row of flats was an anti-climatic turn in history for this site but no telling what it'll turn into a 100 years from now. :wink:



Cheers!

I 've both sampled and have a preference for the St. Magdalene. I do like the Rosebank( have now a Rosebank 12-year-old F&F - very nice), but there's some (more) mystery with the St. Magdalene and that's what attracts me :) It's such a great name! So, you probably know, I
voted for.

I'm still a virgin when it comes (what an expression!) to either Rosebank or St. Magdalene. But like I've said before, virginity can be cured. If I could chose between a Rosebank (OB or IB, whatever) or a St. Magdalene Blackadder Raw Cask 1982 25yo which would you recommend? And don't say 'both'.

I forgot to ask this. Is there any significant difference in flavours?

Thanks Ganga. I'm still drawn to Blackadder bottlings. I do like their point of view about bottling straight from the cask. I'll take you up on your suggestion and I'll let you know what I think of it.

Rosebank for me.

The first malt whisky I ever tasted.
The first is always the best!
