Cask 61 – 46%
My Tasting Notes:
Nose: Smoked ham, a fishing pier at low tide, orange zest, honey, vanilla, nutmeg.
Palate: Very mild peat, mixed citrus fruit, honey, hints of liquiorice, butterscotch and savoury herbs.
Finish: Very long, fruity and slightly smoky.
Overall: Pretty much a quintessential Springbank with a very nice freshness. Even though it is not cask strength the flavours are densely packed yet delicate.
Rating: 89/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
