- This is vatting of 38 year old from 1965 and 10 year old from 1993.
- [October, 2005] Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 63,50 Euro in October, 2005.In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored this 85. My notes state "some like it, other's do not... I am in-between"
- Colour: Old gold
Nose: On dry grass, old leather, toffee and tannins, plums and some varnish.
Rich, complex and intruiguing. Diluted, on old wood bonfire, toffee. Leather and
touch of salt. Delicious.
Taste: Oak, juicy sweet maltiness, round, rich and lot of complexity, with
old soft peat smoke, some leather, prunes and some saltiness. The finish is
sweet, malty and juicy-fruity. Lots of depth and complexity.
Impression: A very nice multi-layered Springbank, with a lot of depth, but maybe
a tad too woody.
- Legs: Thick and fast
Light and floral at first, almost grassy then cereal & biscuits with a hint of light oak, a touch of plasticine, lemon sharpness & some menthol come through later.
Earthy and doughy. Warming with a hint of mint. Not as complex as I would have expected from the nose
Medium short, mint and lemon come through.
