Nose

super complex nose where earth, sherry and tobacco are mixing theirselves up. The alcohol is tickling in the nose and it is a bit difficult to get every little detail out of the dram.

Taste

very delicious and balanced in the mouth! Fresh sherry fruitage, very juicy! More than solid dram!

Finish

The Springbank character is definitely in the finish and the dram gives a long espresso, tobacco, hay and sherry finish.

Comments

Super nice Springbank with the perfect sherry influence as it is enlarging the distillery scope but not killing it.

Color
Tawny
Nose

A very complex dram, in which the peat/earth, sherry and fruit seem to fight for domination. This gives a nose that is full of softly peated tones, of wet peat, plaster, moss, and tobacco. Next, the fruit that can be detected is quite dark: dark cherry and forest fruit. The sherry brings some apple treacle (appelstroop) and a decent level of nuttiness (almond). 

Taste

Very complex, with sweet jammy notes, but also a good level of sourness from fresh fruit.  The peat gives some salty kick, and the well-known dirty edge to Springbank drams, with moss, tobacco, and forest soil. 

Finish

The finish actually confirms the complexity of the nose and taste. It gets increasingly fruity, this time with tropical fruit next to the sherry associated (dried and forest) fruit. Still, the peat gives its distinctive edge, next to a gentle level of spice.

Comments

I wouldn't mind purhasing 6 of them, yet they are all sold out by now...
