    I will not hide a little disappointment. On paper, it's a UFO: Springbank 25 years old (excuse of the little), the castle Petrus ... However, the product seems to me too little succeeds. So of course the typicity of SB is expressed. But one has the impression that it is quarreled with the wine (which is especially the tannic side and not the fruit that expresses itself). It is not the harmonious marriage of two great, they are two titans who clash. Result: neither of them really manages to sublimate the other. Pity !

    Got some of my bottle left for sampling.
    • Nose
      Initially Hamkas (ham & cheese crisps), you need to give it some time. Blackcurrant, peat, mocha and caramel. Later apricot jam.
    • Taste
      Peat, blueberry, caramel, mocha, cinnamon, salami and dried apricot.
    • Finish
      Stones, like in a sauna. Peat, mocha, caramel, blueberry, cinnamon and plum.

    The 9 year Chateau Petrus finish is a bit much for me, it hide the lovely Springbank notes.
    But anyway, it's a quality stuff!
    • Nose
      Forest fruits, wine, celery, red apple, spicy oak and salted peat.
    • Taste
      Intense. Ginger and horseradish, salted minerals, dry oak, red apple and spicy wine.
    • Finish
      Medium length, dry, oaky.
