Amber pour. Nose is apple candy and other presentations of apple, floral meadow, soft spices (coriander). Mouth is pleasantly sweet and tart with more green apple, pie crust, brown sugar. Sharp and pleasantly hot. Not peat-forward at all, but sharp in the tart apple flavors. Really nice. Above Hedley Wright 21, below John Mitchell 21.

Nose

Intensive and rich notes of sweet sherry, blood oranges, honey, jam and touches of vanilla, oak wood, citrus fruits and some more aromas.

Taste

Perfect balance of sherry and a fruity sweetness. Punchy but though smooth and oily, citrusy. Apricots, mango and oranges again.

Finish

Long and spicy. A bit peppery with again some sweet notes, oak wood and really faint touches of vanilla.

Comments

Really superb. In my opinion this 21yo Springbank is rather underestimated compared to some other Springbanks that are not even close to this one. One of my favorite Springbanks that is still available here and there.

Nose

February 2012.

marzipan, sherry, sweet creosote.

Taste

Sugary sweetness, honeyed, marzipan again, oranges.

Finish

sweet, long and soothing.

Comments

Well this was excellent with a great nose. Some people say Springbank is over rated but on the strength of this plus a 25year I tried a few months back it deserves its high praise.
