    Typical old Springbank with plenty of cooked oranges, tobacco and old books - this is how I like them most - fantastic!

      Plenty of cooked fruits, cooked oranges, jam, some pineapple and passion fruit, mango, ripe apricot, acacia honey, pipe tobacco, hints of cloves and nutmeg, whiffs of vanilla and smoke, some old books and OBE - superb!

      Oily, fruity, spicy, good sweetness, more cooked oranges, hints of pepper, ripe apricot, more pipe tobacco, honey, fine notes of sherry wood, some exotic fruits too, old books, hints of OBE, little herbs - delicious!

    Beautiful with every sip. The nose is captivating, the mouth is bewitching, the finish captivates.
    • Nose
      Very delicate nose on wood, with a nice sweet varnish. Fresh and chopped on passion fruit, papaya and a little white grapes. Oily and slightly minty wax.
    • Taste
      Tropical fruit storm on the palate: mango, papaya, guava, pineapple, banana… The layers are superimposed before merging with consistency, splendid. Nice power for 46%, superb reduction. Creamy on caramelized brioche and gingerbread, chocolate milk.
    • Finish
      Very long and warm finish which melts and evolves on wood and leather a little bitter and metallic but graceful.

    The nose is really superb, but it collapses a bit in the mouth.
    Could be much different with another bottle.

      A rather woody nose for a Springbank from this decade in simple "oak". Probably a nice percentage of sherry goes into the blend.

      We also have a superb fruitiness, with a light mango, papaya, passion fruit, muscat grapes.

      Light grape seed, liquorice, anise and cloves, mixed with the wood, which gives a slight bitterness.

      A little engine oil, from an old, slightly metallic oil lamp.

      In the mouth, everything collapses at the first sip.
      Dust, metallic, wet cardboard. It's kinda killed by OBE and reduction.

      The fruit is nevertheless there, very light, in the background, exotic at will.
      We guess a superb milk chocolate, beautiful Christmas spices.
      The melt is divine, and it's slightly creamy.

      You really have to take a big sip to enjoy it.
    • Finish
      89 89
      The finish is long in the mouth, with a very nice papaya, mango, passion fruit, milk chocolate, and mint cream.

      Here too, we smell the OBE a lot, but luckily, the aromas pierce and stay in the mouth.
