    Is it same as samaroli?

    • Nose
      92 92
      Very citrusy sherry influence, a lot of fresh herbs, dried plums, apricots and oranges. Balanced by Springbank funkiness (mineral, chalk, waxes, root vegetables) and five spices. The nose is pretty but not a "wow" for me.
    • Taste
      96 96
      Very intense and very sweet! Tons of fresh oranges, lotus roots, chunks of fresh chocolates, roasted walnuts, super dynamic on the tongue, closed by some cold espresso, wood extracts and chocolate spices.
    • Finish
      93 93
      Long, Hong Kong olive pickles, dried oranges, a touch of coconut, huge chocolate spices, definitely some umami.

    The bottle Looks like the Samaroli. Profile is close but a bit different without these exotic fruit notes, closer to the 1967 and the tappo sugghero, superbly complex with dark fruits leather mushroom orange peel, raisins, toffee, superb. Head to head with the 12yo cadenhead proof it shows that springbank can produce so many different styles all outstanding
