    Great old style dark sherried Springbank - belongs to my favorites. I could sip this endlessly.
    • Nose
      First toffee galore, then the fruits come out, oranges, plums, ripe bananas, tropical fruits, sweet oak wood, faint smoke
    • Taste
      Warm, smooth, liquorice, fruity, woody, perfect level of sweetness, brown sugar, toffee and dark chocolate
    • Finish
      Warm and long, no bitterness at all, the aromas arrive even deeper

    These old Springbanks are often beautiful, and this one is no exception. A malt sometimes on the edge of the razor, as the balance between the wood and the fruity / sherry is tense, but which stays afloat with panache! Should be worth 93/100 "in my books", but earn a point for this absolutely fabulous nose, without any restraint.
    • Nose
      I love the nose of these old Springbanks. It is a basket of dried fruit, papayas, apricots, pineapple, candied orange zest, a sweet exoticism but not disgusting. A veil of coal smoke covers the fruit, accompanied by sherry, wax, precious wood, old weathered furniture. Happiness !
    • Taste
      Terrible ... We find all that the nose foreshadowed, a superb balance between fruity acidity, sugar, a good woody bitterness that avoids sinking into malt for lovers of sweets, and always this very subtle touch of smoke. The 46% are fully exploited, we do not feel any weakness.
    • Finish
      Long, but not enough ... We would like it to last forever. It is well marked by the bitterness of tannins, but a last fruity touch of sugar and acidity allows it not to fall into the excess of wood.
