    Transferring previous Note (2011.11.30) content into a Tasting Note.
    • Nose
      First of: quite sharp alcohol, mineral, old brown & used leather
      (satchel), hessian, sweet disolved malt drops, dark chocolate, a touch
      of sulphur/gunpowder, hazelnut yoghurt (83)
      Later: Sweeter, more compact, hazelnut oil, cereals, mushrooms, turns slightly dusty, warm smoke (85)
      W
      Water: Slightly more artificial sweet, becoming a bit more generic and
      loosing some of the typical recent Springbank characteristics (79)
    • Taste
      quite strong spirit, more hessian right away, some black tea, blackberries, honey, (82)
    • Finish
      dry, leather, (fermenting) hay, apricots, cereals, motor oil, charred wood, fresh saps, turning even dryer at the end (83)
      Later: turning somewhat towards the sweeternotes, but dryness prevails still  (83)
