    Orange apricot honey quite fruity, very old style, some grassiness on the palate, very easy to drink

    A bit too green for my taste, okayish but definitely not my favorite
    • Nose
      Green fruits, leafy, grassy, grapefruits, just whiffs of honeydew
    • Taste
      Oily, waxy, peppery, something green again, old wood or even a touch of cardboard, could also be tobacco and cigar ashes, some limestone
    • Finish
      Medium long, warm, a tad bitter in the end, a bit like cold smoke

    I had contact with Springbank about this bottling. Their estimate is that it was bottled in the early eighties.Compared it to the Black Ceramic Jug (ID 68577). This one is clearly more waxy, with a bit more sherry matured whisky involved.
    • Nose
      Honey, apricot, orange, beeswax, banana, butterscotch, apple, vanilla, litchi and cigar. Perhaps a little ehhh... OJE (old jug effect??).
    • Taste
      Orange like in an old cognac. Honey, apricot, beeswax, caramel, citrus and peat.
    • Finish
      Orange, honey, caramel, grapefruit, banana and a whiff of smoke.
