    From the sample. Very quiet. Nothing special. She rather disappointed.
    • Nose
      Waxy, light smoke, freshly cut grass, peach, (with water) gelatin teddy bears, skin, gentle rubbish.
    • Taste
      Bitter, grapefruit peel, coconut flesh, (with water) unripe peach, immature strawberry, nectarine, pepper.
    • Finish
      Long, slightly ginger, greenery, (with water) coffee bean, soap, bitterness.

    Springbank, yes but not mind blowing. Still very easy to drink with that typical salty tang but more in a reduced way.

    Taste the Whisky Festival 2016 as the very first, almost obligatory shot, recommended by Karel Pinka. I think he's got a whole bottle, I'd probably be more disappointed with her. Anyway, an interesting rarity bottle, it is great that Peter managed to get a bar of such old whisky for another festival performance.
    • Nose
      Fresh, lighter, but quite rich in different shades of scent. Citrus, grass, candy sweet gummy teddy bears, a little sour. Add a butterball pear and a laundry gum (yes, we sat down at one table so I did not avoid being affected). (85 b)
    • Taste
      My taste came to me first, as if she had more percentages. Citrus, vanilla, wood, pears and peaches. In woody bitter taste. (83 b)
