    My first impression of this Springer is that this is a nice juicy one full of tropical fruits that has plenty of distillery character on show.

    This is THE typical Springbank pattern that is not dark sherried. I think it couldn't be any better this way.
    • Nose
      Intense tropical fruits, pineapples, bananas, citrus fruits, passion fruit, green apples, and many more. Bees wax, sweet oak, vanilla and even a bit mineral and grassy notes.
    • Taste
      Extremely liquorice, oily, waxy and smooth. Mineral notes, pears, faint touch of oak wood, smoke, ashy and old books.
    • Finish
      Long and smooth - really just a tad bitterness - doesn't hurt at all.
