    Rather easy drinkable - definitely less heavy than the millenium 25yo - but really good stuff!
    • Nose
      Nectar, honey, overripe fruits, cantaloup melon, peaches, hints of old books too - very good
    • Taste
      Oily, mellow, fruity, very good balance between sweetness and oak wood, spices, pepper, cloves - great
    • Finish
      Long and warm, more spicy and punchy towards the end

      Nutty and sooty.

    From: http://www.whisky-online.com/springbank-25-year-old-frank-mchardy-70cl-46-vol-distillery-bottling.html
    To commemorate Frank McHardy`s 40 years in distillery. Matured in Oak Casks for over 25 years at the Springbank Distillery and only 610 bottles was produced at 46% Vol.

    Nose: Fresh, fruity. Red apples, lemons and coconut.

    Palate: Sustained, teasing interplay of firm, malty, sweetness and dryness - and yet more fruit. Bananas, raspberries.

    Finish: Shortbread, cookies. ike the base of a fruit pie.

    Comment: Springbank can sound like a fruit salad, but the whisky has a lot of authority.

    Dave Broom Tasting Notes.

    Nose: Neat it has a fresh spray of tangerine peel. With water, more oily and mature. Notes of strawberry, quince/medlar, pine and Maltesers. All quite reserved.

    Palate: Great feel. A dram which fills the mouth. Good balance between sweet and almost savoury. Orange curaçao and a sooty note.

    Finish: Very light smoke.

    Comment: Understated - a bit like Frank in fact.
