    I like it, but it is also quite dry from the wood. Maybe also day form. But this one is a nice whisky with the Sringbank typical light peat notes. I had too little calvados to consciously taste the calvados, but an apple fruit note is not to deny the whisky.
    • Nose
      great fruity Springbank nose. Intense, apples, some peat. Very fresh and delicious
    • Taste
      Here comes the Springbank out. Peat, orange peel, salt, but also some aromas, probably from the Calvados barrel
    • Finish
      Spicy oak, peat, some salt and fruit (a little apple, a little orange peel) and a tart finish.

    Are people afraid to say they detect apples in a calvados-aged whisky? Like, "this wine taste like grapes." This is one of my more memorable whiskies and I thought it was terrific! Very unique!

    Notes from 12/29/14:

    Nose: Apple, smoke, honey, grass. Drier style.
    Palate: Big flavor. Smoke on the fore supported by fresh apples but dry and woody.
    Finish: More of the same. Very nicely balanced.
    Would have loved a bit more sweetness but the smoked apple flavor is downright awesome! I'm going to look for more calvados casks after this.

    definitely not my favorite spring bank
    • Nose
      Oily almost a little petrol but also light smoky notes. Slightly salty with light citrus fruits over time
    • Taste
      On the tongue first tingling then a little peppery. Shortly a nice sweetness comes out almost like caramel
    • Finish
      Short and sweet. at first a little salty then changes to peppery and very slight bitterness
