    The nose is just awesome. The palate doesn't have the frame some other versions of this dram present. However, there's much room for added water, hence added complexicity. The finish is less inspiring. A stellar bargain for the price. One of the better Springbanks I've tasted. And whiskys overall, in fact.

      Mild sherry; an overwhelming fragrance of some apple-like fresh fruit; cream, leaning into butter; integrated alcohol, yet powerful. There's another element in the background I cannot identify. The best nose I probably have come across. Not the absolute perfect symphony of fragrances. But fantastically distinct fruit and cream/butter.

      The fruit and mild sherry has transformed into winegums; diluted in powerful alcohol I might add; without adding water, tho. Very creamy, not that buttery this time. I've tasted different embodiments of this dram perhaps five times. This version does not present a frame as robust, compared to some others. Not impossible to drink without added water, but it takes off some unnecessary attention from the alcohol. There's a big wave of peat/spice, that takes time to grow.

      The taste of winegums can have a cheap feel to it. Dryness.
