    Lot of wood spice, dark fruits - probably not the best Springbank 1968 I ever had (the age is probably a bit over the peak) but still very good!

      Intense, nutty, tobacco, dark fruits, berries, oak wood, little toffee, dried fruits, plums, honey, brown sugar, hints of vanilla - great

    Developing slightly unfortunately IMHO. Started really good on the nose. The finish did not do it for me unfortunately. Hint of soap in 2 of the sips did not help.
    • Nose
      Wood. Grass. Jammy. Some of that 'old bottle' style. Caramel. Floral. Mint and eventually the earthlyness comes through
    • Taste
      Nice creamy texture. Woody at first. Some tannins. A tad sour. Then more fruity. Bitter after a while. Some red berries. Minty, Spicy and Malty
    • Finish
      Jammy. Long finish. Apples. Some floral notes. Tannins, and some burnt rubber here now. Red berries from a to z is always Nice. Slightly metallic in the very end.
