Tasting with FineSpirits_butler1 in July 2016.
Maltiness, mixture of tropical and bright fruits, oranges, Kiwi, fruits in alcohol, Papaya, apples, hints of banana - all these powdered with vanilla bean, chocolate-cream-liquor, working desk, old furnitures from the 50's, terpentin on wood, cigar leaves on wood, 'Oldtimer'-interior with leather seats;
intense red jams (also on butter brötchen), very sweet and juicy tangerines, bright toffee, some beaf, jam-bullion cube mix, some honey, some Demerara, Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte, coffee beans;
pears, cherries, mild citrus peal, the sauce of a fruit salad - with salt & pepper, Minestrone with butter, distant noble milk chocolate, hints of coffee flavors, slightly sour Bratenmarinaden, also some Sauerbraten, smoky apricot, some Bergamot, old cigar box ...
Mostly the same as in the nose. Additions:
Powerful, intensive aromatic, 'old' stuff, very long development;
more citrus and cake than in the nose;
lightning house TOTAL!
Also upholstery, fruit brandies, some smoke and bergamot …
Motor and engines, Demerara, fruit sweetness, great cask/wood, aftertaste of mostly all aromas, metal on wood, salt (!), cellar, forest ground and mushrooms (Steinpilze!), not salted Cashews;
apple compote, mint tea, some Cognac, dry wood ...
- Compared to the 1998 edition this one is more on the 'malty' side,
and the nose is not as deep … - it's ruled by fruit and honey sweetness.
But: what a wonderful Whisky !!!
First tasting with FineSpirits_butler1 on the 2. of July 2016.
- Perfectly balanced, one of the best 21 yo Springbanks
Honey, oaky, fruity, ripe bananas, some vanilla, citrusy, oranges, apples, cinnamon
Very balanced oak and sweetness with some fruitiness,touch of vanilla, very smooth
Medium long, smooth and warm, just a tad bitterness and little grassy in the end but really not much
