Tasting Notes by Volks
O how lucky i am. Must thank my local store than Oak Barrel Wine Cellar for hosting the Springbank tasting evening and Premium Scotch Importers for sharing their stock.
A privately owned cask is a rare treat for a poor uni student and boy i wont forget it.
Colour: perhaps a touch lighter than the normal Springbank hue
Nose: grass, creamy, touch of salty, generally mellow and subtle
Pallet: smooth, rounded, developed, lightly herbal and refreshing
Finish: gentle spice, cinnamon, creamy again
this is without a doubt the strangest Springbank i have ever tasted. the usual malt and full bodied barley with maritime character was completely absent in this bottle. If you served it blind to a Springbank buff i would be suprised if he picked it.
