    Cooked yellow fruits compote, candied orange, cristallised sugar, tobacco, toffee, precious woods, pepper, old style fruitiness, excellent

    A bit reluctant on the nose at first but nothing wrong with that, very much as expexted on the palate, this is my preferred Springbank profile, very drinkable and enjoyable - just great!

      Fresh and cooked oranges, honey, spices, tobacco, ripe apricot, strawberry, jam, tobacco, sherry wood, old books, some OBE - great!

      Fruiy, oily, citrusy, subtle sweetness, honey, spices, little pepper, more cooked oranges, tobacco, apricot, sherry wood, hints of ginger and vanilla, cloves, cinnamon, jam, little old books and herbs, probably some OBE too - excellent!

    Quite a lot of OBE but very good overall. Definitely a bit past.
    • Nose
      Initially, copper and metallic on the nose, then yellow fruits like mirabelle plum with a hint of banana. An ounce of pretty wood behind, too bad it was extinguished / melted in a slightly dusty cellar. Lots of OBEs.
    • Taste
      On the palate, rather very pleasant metallic and fruity acidity. OBE. Peppery, light dry wood. Fruity on peach.
    • Finish
      Short finish on metallic peach.

    A Springbank unfortunately drunk far too late.

    So yes, we stay on a nice old malt full of OBE, but disappointing for a Springbank.
    • Nose
      88 88
      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.
    • Taste
      87 87
      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.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Short finish, mineral and metallic, with pear skin, pepper.
