    It is not as complex as some of its brothers in this series, yet still

    PS. When I smell my empty glass again after ten minutes, it is pineapple
    all the way. Lovely!
    • Nose
      The nose is a beautiful mix of sweet and salt. Sweet as in vanilla,
      white fruit and icing sugar. Salty as in stockfish. It has a little dirty edge,
      which I expect with Springbank. Potato skin. That is a first! But very
      pleasant, albeit somewhat light. After a few moments it evolves into hay and
      yello fruit. Also a soft smokiness and a touch of burnt wood appears in the
      background. It even turns a bit exotic. Pineapple, maybe?
    • Taste
      The attack is soft on pepper and a bit creamy. Pleasant but very
      alcoholic. The sweetness from the bourbon casks is joined by mildly salt

      quite like this.
    • Finish
      The finish is fairly long, sweet with a bit of smoke until the bitter
