    Springbank
    1965/1988 (46%, Moon Import, The Birds,
    cask #367, 504 bottles)

    From a butt. Colour: dark amber. Nose:
    a very evanescent fruitiness (oran…
    whoosh) and then the most magnificent
    meatiness one can find in whisky,
    combining plain beefsteak and venison.
    I’m not kidding, this smells
    just like a wonderful piece of cooked
    meat. Make that tournedos Rossini
    (beef filet topped with foie gras
    and mushrooms). Mouth: no, it does
    not taste like tournedos Rossini!
    We have rather a huge yet complex
    fruitiness involving tropical fruits
    (dried lychees, avocado milk, kumquats,
    coconut liqueur and so on) and countless
    soft spices. The rest will remain
    between me and this malt ;-). Finish:
    not excessively long but rich and
    candied, mainly on dried dates and
    orange-flavoured caramel. Comments:
    the only problem with these whiskies
    is that their greatness is expected,
    so no surprises. What a pity! Now,
    this at cask strength would be…
    unimaginable! SGP:532 - 93
    points.
