Cask 489 – 57%
My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Bright gold
Nose: Smoking chimneys near the sea shore, honey, a whiff of tropical fruit, nutmeg and cloves.
Palate: Peat, candied orange and lemon zest, banana, honey, hints of caramelized walnuts, cloves, nutmeg and a bit pf pepper.
Finish: Long and smoky with spicy fruit.
Overall: The trademark combination of brininess with citrus zests makes this a typical specimen from the Springbank distillery. Very good but also very expensive for a 10 yo.
