    Intriguing bottling, orange marmelade, toffee, surprisingly rich. Only 8yo, what a cask it must have been, brilliant!

    Tasted this one blind, and the notes are based on that. Thanks dd..!! Nice supersmooth nose. Palate and finish somewhat a bit rougher if that makes sense, still enjoyable :)
    This is an old release, not necessarily old content. 15 years ? 48-52%. Hm, if I was to Guess, it would be Springbank bourbon matured

    A darker expression of the 8-year old with a unique bottle shape that seems more mature than the stated age – the best 8-year-old so far – never seen this anywhere else before – great stuff!
    • Nose
      Cooked oranges, old books, pencil shavings, toffee – very good
    • Taste
      Fresh, fruity, blood oranges, fine sherry wood, subtle sweetness, toffee, milk chocolate
    • Finish
      Medium long, more herbal, grapefruits too
