Nose

Zu Beginn eine bourbonlastige Klebstoffnote, der mineralische und salzige Brennereicharakter kommt aber daran vorbei, nach etwas Standzeit ist der Klebstoff verflogen und es wird sehr süß und tropisch, Mango, Pfirsich, Honigmelone, mit Wasser wird Karamell sehr dominant

Taste

Überraschend rauchig und kräftig, volle Süße und wieder etwas Klebstoff, cremig, gelbe Früchte untermalen alles, mit Wasser sind Orangen und Mango wieder voll da 

Finish

Kräftig, Eichenwürze, danach bestimmen Salzigkeit und Mineralien das Spiel, die Früchte sind nur noch zu erahnen 

Comments

Sehr lecker. Repräsentiert gut den Übergang von Bourbonnoten zu tropischem Duft bei Bourbonlagerungen.

Color: Straw

Nose: Oh yes, this is lovely! Sweetness at first, mango and some other exotic fruits, which evolves into a confectionary note, hints of bubblegum. Then some roasted almond, citrus and vanilla, with just a tiny bit of ash.

Palate: The sweetness continues here, mango and unripe banana. Some pepper spice, probably because of the high ABV. Nuts again, quite briny, and a hint of peat. There's also a musky note in there, which I find typical in Campbeltown whisky.

Finish: The sweetness is still there, accompanied by vanilla and honey. Some bitter oak to balance it out, medium long.

I haven't had a lot of Springbank, but I've loved every single one, and this is no exception.
