    What to say ? A glass that makes you travel, to feel, which makes you put down the notebook, close your eyes, which makes you dream of having a full bottle. You could almost believe in rum. And to say that it is reduced, I dare not imagine with more degrees. Not legendary for nothing.
    Crazy nose, crazy mouth, comforting finish.
    • Nose
      Syrupy nose on orange, spices with cinnamon in mind, intense and concentrated on different wood essences: cedar, pine and a plank of sandalwood, chocolate with toasted almonds, brown sugar, coconut. What a burst of intensity at 46%. The fruits appear, roasted pineapple and braised banana. Cold wood smoke in a caramel workshop. A grain of sulfur. Field of dry ferns on a late summer day. Powerful and delicate.
    • Taste
      Oily, fresh and minty palate, orange jam, banana cream, crème de bois, chocolate milk cream, shea butter with a few drops of coconut essential oil. Honey, cinnamon and toasted walnut cake.
    • Finish
      Final on precious sandalwood type, long but discreet, a touch of acidity on the tip of the tongue like dark chocolate, a little cut grass, vanilla pepper.

    Was a bit shy on the nose at first but showed the full potential on the palate and in the finish - my preferred Springbank profile - delicious!
    Probably a little bit more abv would have boosted also the rating...
    • Nose
      93 93
      Lots of cooked oranges, old books, hints of vanilla, spices, wet tobacco, little brown sugar, old wooden cabinet, little exotic fruits, passion fruit, little pineapple, whiffs of toffee and smoke - great!
    • Taste
      96 96
      Oily, creamy, little sirupy, little punchy, good sweetness, little liquorice, more cooked oranges, jam, tobacco, toffee, milk chocolate, spices, little nutmeg and cinnamon, hints of raisins and molasses, some sherry wood, little vanilla, peppery - excellent!
    • Finish
      95 95
      Medium long, warm, fruity, still good sweetness, more punchy, peppery, spicy, more old books and tobacco - fantastic!

    That’s kind of a mix between a rum and a springbank, thinks i liked #365 more but this is brilliant
