    Aromatic very classic, exciting Springbank.
    Polished and subtle in the nose and - the exact opposite - powerful-powerful on the palate with good length.

    Nice fabric and the issue price a real recommendation.
    • Nose
      91 91
      Fine, elegant, subtle. Mineral, fudge, pickaxe, oranges, apricot jam. Then maritime tones and a hint of smoke and peat. Deep.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Starts sweet, fruity (apricots, oranges) and lush, then becomes firmer, more masculine, increases in power. Rich, powerful, powerful. Peppery, mineral, pickaxe. Dense & compact.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Citrus fruits, smoke, mineral, dry, very long, balanced, firm.

      Punchy, very oily, vanilla cream and milk chocolate, good sweetness, little fruity, pineapples
