    F: meat, wood, dry and spicy

    A lot of glue in the nose, but also balanced tropical fruits with caramel. The alcohol is hardly noticeable, I would have guessed blindly at 46%!
    Delicious melon aromas in the mouth, everything remains subtle, only the finish then flattens out a bit quickly.
    In any case, interestingly different from the current 12 cask strength versions!

      First comes the peat followed by smoke and then a blast of fruit and citrus oil.

      Dominant peat when this hits the palate. After a few minutes and the phenols dissipate, stone fruit, cherry and peppercorn spice round things out.

      The finish is long and complex. Lots of wet oak and some smoke. Water really helps this one to balance out a bit.

    (blind) Nose: concentrated, ripe fruit, dried fruits

    Palate: ripe exotic fruits, some peat, very very good!

    Not the sexiest profile but here it works well. I'll see that on the side of Springbank and assimilated
    • Nose
      Straight, lemony and tense.
    • Taste
      In line. More wax, paraffin. Citrus fruits are present and the mineral side too.
    • Finish
      Quite long, evanescent, peppery and very light smoke. Softer too.

    It's a bit less fruity and creamy than the previous edition 10yo 100proof with the beige label. Still a typical and good Springbank.
    • Nose
      Green fruits, little peat and smoke, leathery, salty, seabreeze
    • Taste
      Punchy, oily, citrusy, little woody, subtle sweetness
    • Finish
      Long and burning

    Sadly discontinued bottling (I prefer this over the 12 YO CS). Clean Springbank with lot of character and power. This was one of the first malts that got me into the malt universe. 

    I have experimented with this bottling in both food and blends and I can recommend trying to pour a dram in the evening and let it stay in the glass until the morning of the next day (without drinking it ;) ) This will make some of the alcohol evaporate, generate the highland mist and change the profile of the dram.

    Meat with raisins maybe even mushrooms. Anyway a full on whisky. Just great. This one has the Springbak touch that I seem to like(love).
