    This whisky got so much better with time. The air in the bottle did wonders. Add just a little water for staggering results.
    One of the best, if not the best, Springbank that ever passed my throat. Simply excellent. What a magnificent experience.

      Strong, oily, dirty, just ripe red fruit, crushed seashells, dirt, butterscotch, sulfur, oak,
      Exactly how one likes it's Springbank single malt IMO.

      First slow. Sweet ripe red fruit, comes walking in. Then fast. The oily butterscotch and dirt come slamming in like a tsunami. A giant brawl commences. The sweet red fruit battle it out with the oily butterscotch and dirt. In the end, both die fighting without a prevailing contestant. Absolutely stunning.

      Medium long. The ripe red fruit swirls in the mouth, the oily dirt and crushed seashells stick to the middle and back of the mouth. All die slowly without getting bitter or drying.

    Its a bit of a one you got to be in the mood for in my opinion. But when you're in the mood it's amazing springbankiness as usual! 

    I tasted it twice from a sample.. The first time I noticed a little bit sulfury notes but not disturbing in any way. Apart from that everything you can expect of a sherryed Springbank. Ad a small amount of water and it becomes very friendly yet powerfull. Great. 

    The second time I started nosing and sipping immediately instead of letting it breath for 15-20 min.. As the time before.. That was a mistake I'm afraid.... The sulfur was much more prominent and I got the feeling I chewed of the red heads of a box of match sticks.... And after that I had a difficult time getting arround that.... But theire was definitely more... 

    So beware.. A great dram when in the mood and not allergic for sulfur. Let it breath a while before starting.. And then you can expect a very decent Springbank dram! 

    Neck use of my mixed experience I midled my scores, could be 2 points up/down depending on the time I tasted it.
