      Such a clean sherry board. Dark and then the classics, leather, egg-boiled raisins, leather, tobacco, dark cherry wood, very juicy, very awesome sweetness, perfectly matched, with menthol in the background

      The start is so violent, so lusciously old, broad, powerful, leather again and the alcohol remains perfectly on the border too strong and round. Unfortunately too short in the back, then disappears surprisingly quickly after a rather long finish. Too bad. But the start is perfect whisky cinema.

      Entry 93, exit 91. Overall, more like 91, 5th

    Delicious. The nose is a dream. Somehow typical spring banknotes, sweet, lovage .. Everything harmonious. No bad notes. But needs some time in the glass. I drank the springbank without water. The alcohol is well integrated. A great composition on the tongue. Sweetness, a little tingling, when swallowing then slight wood bitterness, but very long finish. A great barrel
