Typical Springbank nose but then light and unpeated. Delicate nose with lots of sweet and sour flavors. Citrus fruits are dominant. I’d describe this as young and spry. It shows quite some mature notes along side of the younger ones I get quite some lemon juice, lime, apple juice and also a more raw peel edge. The more heavy spirit character is there as well. I get vanilla, fruity yoghurt drink and some laurel as well. It’s very pleasant and enjoyable.
Pleasant and gentle arrival. It’s oily and a bit creamy. Sweet and sour. It is more of the above actually. But a little less apple juice and a little more citrus. Honey-like sweetness make this palate really enjoyable.
In the medium length finish more dried spices dominate. Quite some old oak flavors and the usuals suspects such as licorice and a little pepper but also there is also fresh grated ginger and quite some dried grass and green herb kind of flavor. Somehow I don’t like this finish very much.
It’s nice. Though the finish is, for me, the least of the 3 judged parts of this dram. I still have a full bottle. Not completely sure what to do with it now. Mainly because of the finish. Sell or drink.
