      aromatic with notes of dried fruit: figs, dates, raisins, some oak, light spice, a little heavy. + H2O: significantly lighter with sherry aromas, dried fruit and a hint of sulfur, somewhat spicy, harmonious and pleasant in appearance.
    • Taste
      88 88
      light start, somewhat spicy, oak, spices, dried fruits, hint of orange, a little barrel, delicate tart oak. Astringent for a brief moment. + H2O: hint of perfumed, sweetish-tart, dried fruits, sherry, spices, oak, hint of honey, trace hot.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Dark chocolate with oak, a hint of chocolate, a little sherry. + H2O: here, too, initially slightly tart oak, light spice and a little sherry, dried fruits, with a sweetish-tart finish. At the end slightly light malty with a hint of smoke.

    Not as beautiful as the story, but not as bad as some official fresh sherry cask that has some annoying stable-like flavors. It is an average 90s Springbank, considering the high overall quality of its contemporaries.

    "It was mid 1993. Florentine’s uncle was awaiting his first niece. Back then, he lived in Scotland and enjoyed the beautiful surroundings. With his big passion for whisky, especially for the famous Springbank Distillery in Campbeltown, he decided to buy his future niece a very exclusive gift. From the day she was born, she would be the owner of the Springbank cask 409. However, she wouldn’t be allowed to have access to the cask until she turned 21 years old.

    After the whisky was able to ripen in the cask for 24 years, she decided to take further action with this unique product. In June 2017, the whisky was bottled with a personalized label, and was shipped to The Netherlands. From the total of 550 bottles, a small selection is now available for commercial purchase, so don’t hesitate too long. Only a few bottles will be sold, the rest will be kept by Florentine herself."
