The nose reveals some animal, meaty notes, on a malty and earthy background with hints of citrus fruit and a touch of ripe fruit. A complex nose failing to be really pleasant.
The mouth, rather dry, is first slightly acid, developing quickly on malt with chocolate notes, and a clear impression of alcohol.
The warm finish keeps the memory of alcohol while it developes pleasantly on malty and fruity (prune) hints.

The rum finish is rather rare in the world of whisky. This bottling remains perfectly in the typical Springbank tones. A very pleasant cask strength where the high alcohol percentage does not hinder the appreciation. The nose reveals immediately all the fruity and sweet touches. A perfect balance between sweet and salty fragrances characterize the taste, prolonged by a remarkably long finish. A perfect wonder.

Apperance: Pale gold
Nose: At first a powerfully dominant acidic fruityness with bubble gums. Develops more complex and deeper scents. Some green house hints, pine nuts, toasted bread, smoked caviar, ethyl alcohol and a nice smokiness behind all that, mostly smoked saucage. Diluted dram is dominated by sweet apple cider but also has barley sugar, rice pudding, marzipan and sandalwood.
Body: Medium, soft
Palate: Curious. Powerful and warm throughout with some raisins, apricots, coconuts and unfortunately a few sickly off notes in the background. Not enough to be really unpleasant but enough to irritate. More pleasant with water but a little less interesting as well. The finish is long and has lots of pink pepper. Very good despite the slightly sickly character! present some times.

The nose is very pleasant and rather sweet, with some fruity citrus hints.
In the palate, a very complex taste, with some smoky and spicy hints, and a general marine impression, salted. The long finish is fresh and spicy, and develops a full range of fragrances.
The relatively high degree of alcohol does not matter to the taste. This bottle is probably the exception to the rule which says that distilleries of the traditional importance as Springbank should not participate in the trend of wood finishes.
