    Compared side by side with 4 other Springbanks, I find it very different from the sherry cask Archives bottling. This one is more complex and more interesting.
    • Nose
      Heavy notes of varnish, paint thinner and sulphur at first, then it becomes more flowery and fruity with apricots, bubblegum, slightly herbal cough syrup and soy sauce. Quite an unusual profile, not a regular sherry bomb.
    • Taste
      Sweet sherry, chocolate, toffee, caramel, more bubblegum, berries, plums and gentle smoke. Nicely rounded and balanced, a rather classical flavour profile, despite the unusual nose.
    • Finish
      Long and powerful notes of smoke and blackcurrant. Very nice.
