    This 13 Year Old Springbank was bottled for the Belgian market, ordered
    by The Nectar. Only 186 bottles were released. It is a single bourbon cask,
    bottled at a no nonsense 56,9% ABV. Well, we are lucky with this Springbank for Belgium, I guess. Still to
    be found.
    • Nose
      The nose is pretty sweet. Here I
      get, next to the honey and vanilla, some more citrus. And also more typical
      Springbank traits: wet Gyproc and jute. Quite some coconut. Pineapple on the grill. Cinnamon. Turkish delight
      and wine gums. Yep, if you take your time for
      this one, you will find it has hidden talents. Pretty complex. Adding water
      barely changes anything.
    • Taste
      Rolling creamily over the tastebuds, it is somewhat alcoholic at first,
      but immediately very fruity (again pineapple and coconut). Nice body. A pinch
      of peper and some liquorice for decoration. Some peat too, but not overly much.
      Diluted it becomes a bit more palatable (well, doh, of course it does) and
      weakens the influence of the pepper, making it sweeter.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium long and offers (unfortunately) nothing new.
