    This Springer's nose has a sherry, citrusy,smokey salty peaty start on the nose with a warm chlorine swimming pool like scent quickly changing to grapefruit, cardamom marzapan to follow without sacrificing classic Springbank DNA.  On the tongue, mouth, I feel like I am drinking the interior leather of a Rolls Royce Silver Cloud with citrusy eucalyptus/cherry smoked venison, salt, peat. Once, it seemed to move to cherry, toffee and honey.  There is a finish that glows and fades well coffee with creme, marzipan, cherry smoke and slight cardamom spice.  It is relatively consistent from nose to mouth.
