A little closed at first. But then, shimmers of a distant farm from somewhere around Campbeltown enter the nose. There's apricot, fig, raisin, banana, strawberry yoghurt, orange marmalade, salted caramel, light smoke, cow shed, sheep wool, burlap, creamy malt, honey and walnut. Very good! Can't detect any dissonant notes,
Mouth coating arrival, and not even that hot for its ABV. Typical Springbank DNA here. Apricot, fig, blood orange, cranberry, salted caramel, apple pie, honey, sheep wool, leather, roast almond, herb butter, engine oil and ground pepper. Brilliantly balanced, do I miss the sherry casks in here? Not per se. I think it's for the better but I can't make a comparison now.
A vibrant, long reverberation of the palate. Orange peel, apricot, cherry, salted caramel, chocolate brownie, creamy malt and almond.
