We are on a wiser profile here, less focused and extreme. More delicate too.
An example of extraordinary Sherry.
The nose is vibrant, alive. Just wow!
We start on a wood absolutely to die for, varnish at will. It feels like an old mansion where the floor reflects.
We have leather, chocolate truffles, a light fruity coffee, a little dust and an old book.
We have a real freshness with this Springbank, with a nice dose of eucalyptus and spray, which mingles with a bright fruitiness. Orange, pineapple, kiwi, grapes (Hamburg Muscat), a light fig.
A little toasted almond and gingerbread.
On the palate, this Springbank is full of wisdom.
The wood is there first again, old, dusty, precious, superb! It encourages you to settle down and concentrate.
We have some old book, some old warehouse, some motor oil.
Dark chocolate, strong coffee, liquorice, pepper, light molasses, cloves.
Superbly balanced spices.
Light barbecue, fatty peat and grilled meat.
Very long finish, peppery, woody, chocolatey and with a variety of roasted dried fruits.
We also have red fruit jam, and some tropical fruits (papaya, orange, kumquat)
Retrolfaction on peat, barbecue, grison.
