    I like that. For only 12 years is already quite complex and adult. Everything is nicely integrated and does not look set. The 46% are just right. Solid part
    • Nose
      Marzipan mixture with coffee and roasted aromas; with a lighter, more beautiful muff; slightly maritime and some menthol; Vanilla; over time, the flavors are sweeter but also earthier (potatoes ?!); altogether a rather complex nose
    • Taste
      nice creamy with caramel and chocolate; Oak and again coffee and roasted aromas; a little sherry sweetness
    • Finish
      short are medium long; very nice spicy and sweet; again chocolate and again coffee aromas; nuts and oak are added

    A bit of everything. Complex - sea, salt, strength and gentleness

    Those enjoying our 12-year-old can expect a beautiful bronze liquid to shine through their dram glass while rich, malty flavours tempt their senses.

    Tasting Notes by Springbank
    • Nose
      Incredibly rich, the influence of the sherry cask is immediately apparent. Sweet, with hints of chocolate - there are also notes of apricot, orange marmalade, almonds and marzipan.
    • Taste
      Malty, fruity and elegant. A very well balanced and rounded dram with hints of oak, figs and nuts.
    • Finish
      A long, lingering fruity sweetness.
