    I love Springbank and I love Rum Casks. So i was very curious ...
    Only
    185 bottles with not more than 49,9% .. hmm seems to be a small cask or
    it was lying very high in the warehouse. Pretty dark golden colour and
    oily character.
    Wonderful nose .. lots of typical rum aromas and fruits. Heavy sweetness, probably wood and smoke, but the Spingbank keeps in the background.
    The
    first taste is a little disappointing. Maybe watery, easy to drink. Not
    too complex. The nose was better. After a few seconds it evolves in the
    mouth. Lots of dry rum aromas are coming. Maybe Trinidad Rum?
    Springbank still stays in the back. Where are the fruits from the nose?
    The finish is very long, but not suprising. Adding water makes the nose
    even better, Whisky aromas getting stronger now. Its even easier to
    drink now, but the palate stays the same. This is a wonderful balanced
    Whisky especially for that age, but I expected more Springbank in it. 88 Points from me.
