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.
