Taste: Sweet, resinous-iodine, tart oak. The sweetness of orange jam with crusts, a little ginger and cinnamon, a little oily, then honey, candied melon, wax, propolis, cardamom. Lots of charming vanilla and oak at the end.
Finish: Long, sweet, resinous-oak-tart, slight bitterness, creamy toffee, vanilla, apricot jam. Quite a bit of iodine, fragrant wood. Even some perfume.
Very balanced in the best traditions of Springbank. From fragrance to finish, it has a strong core on which all fragrances are strung. And the vanilla-apple extravaganza at the end of the finish is simply amazing.
