    Oldschool Springbank.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Der hohe Alkohol macht zu Beginn ordentlich auf sich aufmerksam und kühlt deutlich in der Nase. 15-20 Minuten Geduld lohnen sich durchaus. Leichte Sherrynoten, Karamell, Dosenpfirsich, feine exotische Früchte (Mango, Papaya), Rauch, Nüsse und ein Hauch Eiche sind da.

      Satter, prickelnder Antritt. Frisch gemahlener Pfeffer, geräucherter Schinken, elegante Sherrynoten, Johannisbeeren (leicht säuerlich), Kirschen, exotische Früchte, Karamell, Orangenschalen, Schokolade, geröstetes Malz und Eichenwürze. Sehr ölig, vielschichtig und komplex.

    Quite aggressive at nose. So much that you hardly recognise the Springbank DNA. 

    With water the dram becomes mild and soften. Calming it down on a strong grass base. 

    Rocks and salt on mouth, feel winter time, watching the ocean during a storm.

    Strong finish but not too long

    In my opinion maturation in cask was a troubled one and just with water you start feeling the real soul of this batch.

    [February, 2012]  I had this dram during a "Springbank" tasting at Bonn.

    In
    my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50
    - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 87,5.  My notes state water improves it.

    • Taste
