    Fresh and fruity like a fruit salad - delicious!
    Probably a bit less complex than the sister cask 2382 but dangerously drinkable and enjoyable!

    really good stuff and we'll worth the high average score in my view
    • Nose

      That is a really nice nose of fruit salad, custard and a faint hint of rhubarb.
      Warm pastry notes emerge, brioche buns that sort of thing, lemon zest.

      Quite punchy and zesty at first, I do not think water is needed but with a little water, it mellows auto and releases more fruit, mango, yellow plum, hint of lemon but what the best thing is the freshness of it, leaves your mouth feeling in strange way really clean, no off notes and good balance to boot.
      This was a great cask bottles at the right time, we'll done Signatory

      it takes water well but water dulls the finish, neat the finish is lovely and probably the best part for me

    Newly opened bottle. A little obe that will come off in time and it tries to mask some flavour, but we’ve been here before so lets go. N: pineapple, passionfruit, caramelized banana, the cask is speaking to us at first, then comes the piney forest floor like Springbank peat. Theres a lovely sour note from the distillate, worcestershire sauce. Finishes on aged H Upman cigars. Ooft. About to taste and more notes come, daffodil, chamomile and then a raft of resins, honeys and oils. In a few months time with some oxygen this will all be on show but it didnt escape us tonight.
    T: Barley, barley, barley oh boy, orange citrus covered bon bons, resinous and beautifully integrated peat bitter notes with great weighty mouthfeel a la Brora. A touch cask forward at 27y in oak, Amontillado? But still very very balanced and a beautiful delivery and finish. Re-nosing reveals just a huge freshness, akin to a meadow walk on a spring morning. Emotional whisky. Bravo SV.

    Typical late 60ies distillation Springbank of enormous complexity with its fantastic fruitiness, cocoa and brilliant herbs. Fantastic subtle wood influence... A style of whisky every enthusiast should have tried at least once in a lifetime...
