    It is said that most of the first-class wineries in Scotland are not as good as they are today, but apart from the decline in the resources of the Sherry barrels of the entire Solvay industry, in fact, in recent years, Springbank’s low-vintage wines have more personality than the previous century. Without that fragrant sweetness, it may be slightly worse, but it has the courage of the young man to slam Fang Qi, the same heritage and good at spring and autumn, the reason of Pajarete? The reason for peat?
    • Nose
      If Yanyan is independent of Lone Pine, the princess Ruoyushan will collapse. The Bourbon Shirley mixing barrel, which is enough to show the deployment of the master, is composed of Xiao Xiaosu's mineral salts, white reefs on the seashore and the inner wall of CaCo3, with a slightly wooly cheese. Hearty fruits and vegetables, citrus fruits, fresh vanilla, violets, sugar content is very satisfactory, milky coconut jelly, buttery hard candy, thick honey, grape flavor Hi autumn, ginger shreds mixed with a little grain and nuts, peat a few Undetectable, only some burning fire.
    • Taste
      At the entrance is the fleeting pepper and salt, ginger tea, followed by a very fruity flavor, citrus, grapefruit, peach, grape, and then the milky fragrance begins to spread, cream, coconut milk surging. Peat is a bit disqualified, and oak is a little less tame, sweet and sweet but the flavor wheel is not very extensive, alas, the inventory of small hand-made factories is a recipe.

      Full and strong, rich in fat, high in sweetness, no tannin, no astringency, no bitter bottom, no spicy feeling.
    • Finish
      Medium length, oak, nuts, milk foam, fruit.

    Very interesting - the nose was really pointing to something green and grassy and then on the palate nothing of it - just typical Springbank - very drinkable, no water needed despite the 57% abv
