      the focus is on salty, maritime, metallic notes (salty liquorice) and a rich sweetness of red fruits (cherries, blackberries). Also some fermented apple and furniture polish. For me, barrel and distillate exist side by side in harmony.

      In the mouth (no water): an incredibly creamy, sweet start (association with cream candy), again cherries, dark chocolate, but the salty-maritime impressions from the nose then come back to the fore and come to the fore. Here too: nice interplay

      Long and salty, metallic, this is where I mean to notice some bacon and nuts for the first time.

    Rich sherry on the nose, blackcurrant jam, dark juicy plums.
    juicy and vibrant palate but it is a little hot so water is added which develops the nose and makes the Sherry even sweeter.
    Nice whisky but the Sherry drowns out any hint of springbank.

    Heavy sherry, well balanced, special character, a Springbank vintage 1993 that reminds me also on some bottlings from the 60s or 70s - great!

      93 93
      Dried fruits, dates, figs, plums, nuts an draisins, old sherry wood, nutmeg, cloves, shoe polish, toffee, dark chocolate, cigar tobacco - great!

      Oily, creamy, liquorice, subtle sweetness, more dried fruits, little nutty, espresso, more dark chocolate, dark berries, spices, more nutmeg, sherry wood, little toffee, hints of leather but not bad - excellent!
    • Finish

      Long, warm, spicy, more sherry wood and coffee, lots of tannins

    Fantastic dark sherry bomb. Intense and sweet dark fruit explosion with lots of complex wood influence, furniture polish, subtle coastal, metallic and smoky aspects. Wonderful mouth-coating and anyhow reminding of some dark sherry expressions out of the 70ies. Truly wonderful sweetness, intensity and complexity!!!
