    I just compared this 29yo one head to head with the following

    1. Springbank 30yo Millenium Limited Edition

    (https://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/11045/springbank-30-year-old)

    2. Springbank 35yo Millenium Limited Edition

    (https://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/11046/springbank-35-year-old)

    The 29yo is for me between those - the 30yo is somewhat lighter than this 29yo and the 35yo is more fruity and intense and overall more balanced. Anyhow this 29yo is really special!

    Very dark, heavy, rich, not drying at all - what a grand old scotch - Fantastic!
    • Nose
      Heavy sherry notes, old books, dusty, dark fruits, prunes, plums, chocolate and toffee, sweet pipe tobacco, very complex - Superb!
    • Taste
      Little punchy, oily, very smooth and creamy, hints of caffe mocha, the dried and dark fruits are back such as plums, dates, etc. nice oak wood, good sweetness - Excellent!
    • Finish
      Medium long, smooth, sweet, fruity
