    Aroma: Open, light, sweetish. Vanilla, citrus (tangerine), monpacier, fresh pastry, berry and marmalade story. Minerality, industrial notes from the category of a car workshop, here and metal shavings and engine oil ..... Light honey trail, spices.

    Taste: Sweetish, light, rich. Vanilla, lemonade notes, fresh pastry, citrus fruits, ginger. Industrial notes, minerality, light smokiness.

    Finish: Slightly longer than average, sweetish with a little pepperiness. Vanilla, citrus, barrel, industrial notes, light smoke. At the end, berry sourness appears.

    Conclusion: If we consider it as a basic 12 year old malt, then it is a good, balanced, quite rich and bright whisky. If you look at it as a jubilee model, it's not a big deal. At the moment, given its price, it is very expensive and unjustified, if only not in the collection. On the other hand, at the start of sales back in 2003, I think I beat off every pound spent on it.

      Closed, but still the saltiness and lemon is pretty prominent, with a very earthy peat. Rather milky and creamy too. Some chlorine smell you get from Water Treatment Plant (I'm an Engineer!).

      Full of citrus fruits, and salted caramel. Some wood, some spices, soft mouthfeel. Not really have that Springbankness. Quite hot on the tongue.
    • Finish

      Pretty short, with lots of wood, and caramel, some bitterness, and some liquorice.

    • Nose
      fresh green apple, caramel, salt, slightly mineral, dried meadow herbs, butter biscuits, smoke only very far away, nutmeg and crushed juniper berries
    • Taste
      oily, creamy, beeswax, salty, lime abrasion, "dirty" Springbank character, warm, moist earth, fresh fruit notes (again apples) and some mint
    • Finish
      very spicy, reminiscent of freshly ground pepper
