    After several miniatures of this 21yo Springbank with the jagged label I got a regular bottle. However, this one is not that dark such as the 21yo Springbank with the brown label which is not jagged (shows 1 of 2400 bottles worldwide).

    This one is more on exotic fruits and citrus fruits while the darker expressions are more on sherry and dark fruits. It's though not comparable to current expressions of the 21yo with the golden label which are more leathery and even little smoky.
    • Nose
      Lemons, grapefruits, pears, mineral, subtle nectar notes
    • Taste
      Oily, mellow, very malty, fruity, citrus fruits, apples, mango, subtle sweetness, hints of oak wood
    • Finish
      Long and warm, more punchy in the end

    Tasted an official miniature: Compared to the other Springbank 21yo with the same label (not jagged) and with "one of 2400" on it this one is more on green fruits and zesty - in other words a tad more bitter. Still very good.
    • Nose
      Rich, sherry nose, toffee, honey, little green fruits, even old books?
    • Taste
      Punchy, oily, good balance between sherry wood and subtle sweetness, little fruity, grapefruits
    • Finish
      Medium long, warm and getting a little zesty in the end
