Nose

Yeasty and malty at first. Sweet-sour stable notes as well, Spirty. Some grapes. Whiff of smoke.

Taste

Very hot and spicy. Stuffed peppers and nutmeg. Juicy but astringent. Lots of citrus fruit of lemon and lime.. Also hints of peat. Orange peel. Winey.

Finish

Medium long. Dryness. Liquorice. Becomes bitter at the end.

Comments

A punchy Springbank without any kind of delicateness. Seems younger than 14 years to me.
