Tasting Notes by Jules
Nose: Mild peat & Sherry - along with unique notes such as Hazelnut, Alka-Seltzer & something along the lines of struck matches. Slightly waxy and quite mineral with a faint coastal whiff...
Mouth: Along the same lines as the nose, but not as sweet as suggested. Very round. Zesty and nutty, with bitter herbs. Medium body.
Finish: Fairly long - lemony, nutty with hints of peat. Some juniper & orange.
Probably better off getting the 12yo if you can find it. Not the peaty/salty Springbank notes you might expect.
