    This is one of the best Springbank that I drank! Just fantastic whisky! I hope one day I can compare it with Springbank from Silvano Samaroli ...

    Very close in profile to the tappo sugghero, it’s pure brilliance

    I was already guessing it from the reddish color: it's one of the great old Springbanks from the 80s from an Italian importer (Sutti). Thus it is very close to the Springbank 10yo, 59%, 100% Pure Malt, "Tappo Sughero" (Link: https://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/41678/springbank-10-year-old ). It should be also close to the famous Springbank 12yo 100proof from Samaroli actually.

    Just Perfect!
    • Nose
      Very fresh, rich, complex, fruity, citrus fruits, tropical fruits, some dried fruits, little wood and toffee, honey - Huge!
    • Taste
      Wow, what a blast! - so punchy and powerful, it's a full fruit basket, with oranges, passion fruits, pineapples, prunes, raisins, and so on. There is a great balance between fine wood notes, a subtle sweetness and really faint touches of leather. Excellent!
    • Finish
      Long and burning, there are coming our more and more different aromas, more woody notes in the end, Superb!
