    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 257 bottles from cask no. 132
    There is always a sense of expectation when we find a Springbank, especially one with a little age, and this is no exception. Matured, unusually for this distillery, in an American oak hogshead, the whisky is a warming gold colour. Medicinal, slightly phenolic notes of Savlon and elastoplast give way to hard-worked Hornby train sets and fairgrounds. Now, some mineral notes coming through with dried seaweed to the fore, then tarry ships’ ropes and a lovely toffee sweetness. Incredibly robust and complex to taste, starting sweet, and becoming more tarry and oily with a huge mouthfeel. The oil soon becomes more earthy, possibly green olives, and now a hint of aniseed. The finish is maritime with a generous helping of brown sugar. This will not disappoint.

    Tasted with Aby and rwillemze
    • Nose
      Briny, whole meal bread and pepper.
    • Taste
      Fruit syrup, exotic fruits, pepper and some smoke. I think the smoke influence is partly due the cask charring.
    • Finish
      Briny - salty, some smoke, pine resin and vanilla - custard.
