  1. hs305 scored this whisky 95 points Connoisseur

    [November, 2000]  I had this dram during a Springbank rarities tasting at Rolandsbogen.  In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50
    - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored this
    95.  My notes state a perfectly balanced flavour profile that is rather centered around sherry aromas.  But as the label states a bourbon cask maybe this was a misprint?  The finish is not very long.

    Brilliant!
    • Nose
      Rich sherry.  Chocolate covered oranges.  Prune juice.  Caramel. Bubble gum. 
    • Taste
      Sweet and salty.  Cherry pie.  Rich raisins.  Citrus peels.  More chocolate (this time less dark).  Malted barley. 
    • Finish
      Long.  Dried fruits.   Cumin and some cinnamon fade.
