    This Springbank is really old school - it exceeds my highest expectations - it competes with the 1966 443 local barley west highland malts - it has just a lower abv (46% vs. 58.1%) and thus is a bit less punchy

      Dried fruits, raisins, plums, figs, toffee, brown sugar, fine oak wood, hints of vanilla, chocolate, old books and much more - just superb!

      Oh yes, fresh and punchy, lots of orange jam, milk chocolate, great oak wood balanced with subtle sweetness, truck loads of dried fruits of any kind - excellent!

      Medium long and warm, fine oak wood and toffee sweetness stays till the end - great!

    I had the opportunity to taste this again from another miniature bottle and I can confirm my initial rating - extremely intense, honeycomb, nectar, dried and cooked fruits, in particular cooked oranges, plenty of old books, jam, finest sherry wood, little pepper, ginger, good sweetness - at cask strength that would have been max points - delicious!

    Miniature bought off ebay.

    A gorgeous sherried malt, with the only flaw being the somewhat thin texture.
    I dont find it to be extraordinarily characterful, but of course that is critique on the highest level.

      Right after pouring quite tense with lots of black pepper, cinnamon and even touches of freshly crushed peppermint. Caramelised walnuts. Dr Pepper. A speck of soot.
      Sweet candied fruits, watermelon flavored bubblegum, mixed haribos, ripe mango, with a backbone of crisp green apple and some bergamot.
      Old varnish, precious woods, lightly musty undergrowth, wet bamboo, old closet. Fragrant little touches of lavender and violets. Dried Sage. Stock powder.
      With water: Risky move. Brings out rather a lot of damp earthiness and a whisp of peat. The sweetness is gone. Different, not better.

      I dare say a bit thinly textured on arrival, but still holding a ton of flavour. Great, long development. Perfect old sherry profile, oaky spice, small sweet and savoury herbs.
      Sweet, yet vibrant fruits in perfect balance. Sugared currants, strawberries and a dried slices of mango. Creamy mocca. Pronounced notes of heather honey.
      A bit of earthy peat, but nothing dirty. Restrained and leathery, smoked ham. A noticable minerality, being slightly flinty in a good way.
      With water: A bit more full bodied and integrated, but lost complexity in the development.

      Long to very long. Semi-dry. There is a spicy impact with the oak being felt, but it tapers off very gracefully on sweet red compote and ripe figs. Honeyed dates. Raw mushrooms.
