    A zesty, spicy nose translates to the palate but it is also drying with some oak coming through.
    The sweet notes increase
    with an explosion of white fruits mixed with white pepper, tastes younger than its stated age but I like it all the same.

    Very good profile of a non-sherried Springbank, in particular the exotic fruits - very good
    • Nose
      92 92
      Intense, honeycomb, oak wood, fruity, quinces, citrus fruits, ripe bananas, hints of vanilla - very good
    • Taste
      92 92
      Oily, oily, smooth, but still punchy, exotic fruits, bananas, mango, creme brulee, toffee, citrus notes, nice balance between oak wood and subtle sweetness - still good
    • Finish
      91 91
      Medium long and warm, more on grapefruits, a tad bitter, hints of old books
