    Cadenhead Springbank Cadenhead.
    • Nose
      Syrupy and musty, dunnage warehouse with apricots, nectarines and pear drops.
    • Taste
      Light smoke, then kiwi and lime mixed with mango, pink peppercorn, soot and olive oil. Peaches and cream with a hint of peat.
    • Finish
      Long lingering mouth coating syrupy fruits. Becomes oiler with hints of cresote but always remaining fresh.

    It is without a doubt a good spring bank, but at this price?
    In my eyes overrated and massively overpriced!
    For this price, you get three independent bottlings, which can easily keep up with this.
    It's a pity that Cadenhead got in the head. Cadenhead had already struck the bow massively with the last Macallan bottling.
    I hope that Cadenhead returns to the ground and focuses on his reputation as a fair, independent bottler.

    Initial price in UK was 420 £. Quite a mark up for the other Cadenhead shops.

    tasted at campbeltown festival directors cut - im being conservative as we were treated to some stellar drams. wonderful dusty SB with bags of distillery character. Profile suits me but the price doesnt ;(
    Out of Cadenheads control but what a fantastic old school dram....
