Of course it was expected that it could be very close to the almost perfect Springbank 10 "Tappo Sughero" (wb id 41678) that has also 59% abv and is from around the same era. Head to head this one is probably a bit less perfect which means a bit less fruity and balanced but I'm really nitpicking here.
Intense, cooked fruits, cooked oranges, jam, hints of dried fruits, prunes, spices, whiffs of xmas spice, cloves, wet tobacco, brown sugar, little molasses as well, finest notes of sherry wood, mature and old but not tired - just superb!
Punchy, oily, liquorice, subtle sweetness, very fruity, more cooked oranges, more jam, more prunes, more brown sugar, hints of toasted bread, fine sherry wood, little toffee, little citric - excellent!
Long, warm, fruity, zesty, orange peel, little grapefruit, more spicy, little more woody notes, not drying - great!
