    Whiffs of smoke, orange, yellow fruits, herbs, candied citrus, excellent

    Clearly old style Springbank with lots of crystallized oranges and little smoky notes. Unfortunately just 43% but still fresh and lively. Very drinkable and enjoyable. Delicious!

    So this is the "100% Pure Malt" bottling of the "over twelve years old" Springbank - difficult to tell if this is very much different from the other "over twelve years old" (id 14484) that doesn't have the "100% Pure Malt" (but otherwise the same - no abv, no size) - just the label from the German importer shows 43%. Thus, same rating for the time being until I will revisit both and compare head-to-head again.

      Fresh, fruity, plenty of cooked oranges, apple, apricot, hints of old books, little spices, cardamom, whiffs of ginger, wet tobacco, honeydew, nectar, melon, hints of strawberry jam, little vanilla, whiffs of smoke - superb!

      Little punchy, oily, fruity, subtle sweetness, citrusy, more cooked oranges and orange juice, apple, apricot, melon, probably also hints of pineapple, mango, more tobacco notes, little smoky, little metallic, some OBE, little spicy - excellent!

      Medium long, warm, more spicy, zesty, little more tobacco and smoky, even a bit herbal but not drying, still pretty fruity - great!
