    Tasted at the Glasgow Old&Rare show February 2018.

    The usual Springbank sulphur, earth, mushrooms and forest floor notes are here but need a few nosings and sippings to get there as this one is very cask dominant. In fact, at first nosing if you nosed this blind you could be forgiven for thinking it was old Stitzel-Weller in the glass. Am I drinking very good old bourbon was my first thought? While very pleasant with beautiful vanilla bean, bananas, guava and melon by the time the Springbank character comes through this feels very Jekyll & Hyde for me. Nice that a malt can change as you enjoy it but this feels very cask dominated and somewhat unbalanced. I really wanted to like it more considering the hype and it is a great malt just not as great as some others from this era.
