Springbank 2001/2009 Small Casks

by Oliver Klimek on January 18, 2010

Batch #1 – 55.3 %

My Tasting Notes:

Nose: Grilling sausages over a campfire, sea breeze, grapefruit
Palate: Peaty and sweet, caramel, ripe citrus fruit, spicy
Finish: Very long, sweet and smoky
Overall: This is Springbank’s interpretation of the Quarter Cask, and it’s a successful experiment. My favourite Springbank so far (although I haven’t had too many yet). It is surprisingly peaty with both a youthful punch and a mature complexity.

Score: 89/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
