    Springbank 20 yo 1967 (46%, Dun Eideann for Donato & C. 1989, cask #3131 – 3136)

    Nose: old-style, dusty sherry, not too aromatic but nicely complex. Starts citrusy, with lots of oranges, then it settles on dried figs, Nutella (both hazelnuts and chocolate) and plenty of silver polish. Hints of smoke and old books. Whiffs of dried coconut flakes as well. Soft notes of dried herbs, which stresses the fact that it’s hardly fruity. Mouth: quite soft, again very dry, waxy and dusty. Old pipe tobacco and some Seville oranges (including zest). Lots of mint, hints of cardboard. Minerals and herbs. It lacks a bit of roundness but it’s typical for this style. Finish: long and resinous, with the smoke moving forward.

    It’s always nice to try very old Springbank, although I think there are even better examples. It felt a little tired. Almost impossible to find.

    Score: 90/100

    from a purchased sample. My MALT KING.
    • Nose
      Fabulous. This is all on waxy and lightly fermented dried fruit at
      first. Apricots, dates, peaches, mango, seville oranges, clementines,
      and, well, you name it. Eventually, some very refined earthy, non-bitter
      coffee emerges, with a trace amount of chocolate in it. Creamy, now
      with whiffs of dried coconut. Cherries. By the end, it's just very rich
      and seductive. Gorgeous.
    • Taste
      Perfect. I wouldn't change a thing, and would drink gallons of this if I
      could. Honey, sweet, soft, silky, smoky. Rather waxy and a touch of
      salt. Obvious fruit (dried and paste). Rosemary, thyme, and spices. More
      quiet coffee. Dates. Burned fruit cake. Resinous and great 'bank.
    • Finish
      Ok, the only problem here is that the fruit finish isn't that long. It's
      more on fruit pith, coffee, and chocolate, still lengthy. Gorgeous and
      refined. Part of me wishes that it were concentrated so I could parcel
      it out for myself over years, but it's not. It's just a refined
      masterpiece. At least as good as the 2008 Germain-Robin Anno Domini (an
      American brandy, and a flippin' phenomenal piece of work). My new goal:
      find a bottle of this.
