So yes, we stay on a nice old malt full of OBE, but disappointing for a Springbank.
A very old whisky nose, very melted and full of OBE.
One has the impression of drinking this whisky in a copper glass.
Fortunately, we have a little fruit, with mirabelle plum, raisins and plums.
But above all a dry oak, slightly dusty, with pepper and a very light camphor.
Probably past a bit, but not quite dead yet.
In the mouth, here too, the OBE is very present, and the dilution is also felt.
Metallic, dust, mineral, pepper, dry wood, light rancid. Apple, pear, and pear skin.
Unfortunately, there is not much left, other than the melting and balance of years spent in bottles.
Short finish, mineral and metallic, with pear skin, pepper.
