Michele!
Such a lovely rose. I've managed to start one from a bouquet. I am curious as to how this grows for you, what disease, does the color vary, etc. Size of plant and form interests me, too. Do you have any newer photos?

I'm sorry, that plant is dead afther a couple of years. The plant was living in a jar, so I can't answer about the size.

This photo appears too orange to be 'Whisky'.

I'm sure this rose is Whisky.

Look this picture:

The rose I bought is orange like in the firsth picture.
The second picture is from the Tantau's Catalogue (italian version 2008) and is more yellow.

Maybe there are two different "whiskey"?
I tryed to contact the nursery, but I did not finded them.

It's possible they have reused the name. This creates a lot of confusion but it is common to do so.

I'll take new picure of this plant in few days and we can have a better idea.

It's up to you as to whether to remove your photo. Roses are often mislabeled from the supplier. If the color is similar it makes things especially confusing. It's happened to me many times.

I have also been told that the Whisky Mac photo that I posted on this site is not a Whisky Mac because it is too orange. I know, when I planted it, the tag said Whisky Mac, but I do see that many photos of this same rose are much more yellow. Maybe there are two different varieties of Whisky Mac?

It is definitely not the commonly known Whisky Mac, which is a blend and sometimes a bicolor. The rose in the photograph is a self, meaning the color is similar on both sides of the petals. Also, the form is too formal, and the foliage is different.

The rose industry can be flimsy with names, so please do not take this as criticism at all :]

I can confirm it. A very strong, gorgeus damask-like fragrance. Infos on the profile have to be updated.

Its growth habit could be perhaps a little too stiff for this old fashioned flower form... but the flower itself is plainly exceptional, very big, perfectly flat and quartered. Like a modern gallica hybrid, with the same fragrance too.
