    Back then, the sherry barrel resources in Genting were definitely higher than they are now, but it’s a pity that the wine’s state of preservation is poor.
    • Nose
      Very full of sherry, stronger than all recent bottled versions, lots of honey, lightly rubbed smoky, silky chocolate, Affogato, cake, toffee. dried tangerine peel, salt, cheese.
    • Taste
      I feel that the preservation state of this drink is not very good, the alcohol is weak, salt water, red dates, milk foam, a little wood stubble, and there is a tightening feeling on the tongue.
      In general, oily, slightly sweet, no acid, no tannins, no astringency, very little bitterness, no pungency, and no alcohol.
    • Finish
      Generally, crushed tobacco leaves, sawdust, dark chocolate, weak tea.

    N Peanut oil, grass, coffee, fruit, minerals, cake, mineral obvious
    T is very oily, coffee aroma, cake, mineral, a little metallic.
    F is very long, spice, a little waxy texture, no strange smell
    Compared with 8 years and 10 years, C is more balanced. I like the aroma of coffee very much. It reminds me of the Yili bitter coffee ice cream I ate when I was a child.

      Intense aroma, with spicy oak, lime syrup, unripe bananas, sunflower seeds, fennel and menthol. Some honey, grapefruit peel and all this is scattered in a dusty attic full of old books. Some mineral notes: salt.
    • Taste

      Creamy, powerfull taste. Green fruits, unripe bananas, caramel, citrus, sunflower seeds, delicate oak (rancio) and milk chocolate. Bitter apple seeds.
    • Finish
      90 90
      crispy, fruity, apple mint, swedish skruf snus and chocolate. Long, refreshing and a little bitter at the end.

    Not sure if the bottle I got is as it should be or if it was a little tired or even faulty. At least it didn't seem like a typical old style Springbank. Thus the score is lower than expected.
    • Nose
      Green fruits, vegetables, even little grassy, old books, old wood, hints of honey and toffee - hmm, let's see...
    • Taste
      Very oily and creamy, just little punchy, woody from old wood, little sweetness, still a little vegi and green...
    • Finish
      Medium long, warm, zesty
