Some old books in the nose and on the palate it has some vanilla notes. It's actually pretty creamy but rather flat on the palate.

Eating an orange on the beach. Ripe oranges with some smoke and salty marine notes come into the nose. While drinking the salty notes are very dominant, but also sweet malt, honey and citrus fruits are visible. A long and sharp peppery finish, remain woody notes and spices. Is now not really the best Springbank I`ve ever drinked.

Comments

A very odd Springbank, you gotta love it or you gotta dislike it, it was a slight dissapointment for me.

Also:
C.V. = Chairman`s Vatting.
In Springbank`s case, both (Curriculum Vitae and Chairman`s Vatting) have been used by different people from the distillery to explain what their C.V on bottlings actually stands for, so even for them it is not clear what it means if it is on a bottle in abbreviated form... gotta love Springbank for being odd ;)

Remember - whisky scores and impressions are highly subjective and situational by nature - so don't go and buy whisky according to someone else's taste...
