    The rum has done a great job here I got an inviting sweetness on the palate. Yet the springbank-ness is so expressive too.

    I do not understand the average rating here: This Springbank has everything to be a really big whisky!

    Unmistakable Springbank! Outstanding in the nose and in the mouth!
    The sweetness of Rumfasses, the Rumnote itself, very beautifully integrated in the Springbank character.
    Not overlying, not even set but harmoniously connected.

    The many turns do not matter to the malt, he is also undiluted thoroughly drinkable.

    Just a fantastic Springbank!

    Springbank July / 1997-March / 2007 9yo for Springbank society members 70cl 60.2% vol. Fresh rum butt 700btls. This can not be drunk unless it is the second half battle? Springbank 9yo! Apparently, such noble distillery is disproportionate to a stupid drinking arm.I am thankful to think that you will get drunk by a lady? Color: A mysterious hue that makes you feel unexpected of split and nice feeling Nose: Feeling stiff and cookie Feeling of metallic container is a sign of sharpness! Attack: What an egg! Truly a metal bat beating affair! Rather than body blow that works from after, the destructive power of a blow! It seems as if I sprinkle the spoon and sprinkle it on the cheese cake Body: The thickness of the armor is great than the weight! I do not want to say that there is no emotion because it is not hydrolysis! This! Taste: It's pretty hard, alcoholic feeling is terrible as Springbank. Is this the essence of Springbank? While there is a large bleeding system with a blade, over time, a soft lamb feeling.Multiply of the old sum of ginger and wooden equipment and rainwater is truly convincing power.Finish: From hard strongholds, dead leaves at once! From there, softness of ginkgo is unbearably contrasting as well! Bad clever Longrow blows away, Lincoln's Tenki sanctions Slainte mhor! Again, it became a valuable cup full of reminiscent of Springbank's single malt whisky symbolism. https://whisky2010.usukeba.com/u/whisky2010/1fyharskeb9fgm
