At the beginning, it shows itself fresh and fruity with a salty sea breeze, roasted orange peel, mandarin, pineapple slices. But he is not "fine", a dirty note resonates and makes the nose only more interesting. According to the bottle label on the back, it should be heavily peated, but the smoky note is subtle and much more pleasing than one would expect for a 48-hour drying of the malt over peat. The aroma spreads more and more, differs now hardly from a younger Springbank: mineral and fruity, salty, fat. The fruits gain more and more in volume, in addition to honey and sugar beet syrup.
On the tongue, it starts with a pleasant force and continues exactly where it left off in the nose - with the possible exception of the fact that the peat smoke now comes out more clearly. Otherwise, on the palate, the tangerines and roasted oranges, blowing a salty breeze from the sea, it feels like you suck a pebble. Honey bread, malt, dry wood. Mineral. Sweet, but not sweet.
Medium long and a bit dry. He pulls his character to the end, without buckling on the way. Mandarins, honey, salted almonds, marjoram.
