Nose: Rich and gentle. Gentle peat, gentle salt, gentle honey, and some gentle sherried fruits. Some pear, apples, and melon. Balanced and smooth. Seems to have a bit of everything without any one element being overpowering. Lovely.

Palate: Some nice oak. Light peat. Earthy, damp, natural peat. Ginger ale. Lemon cough drops. A bit of salt and the faintest spice. All of these individual elements are distinct and characterful; nothing convoluted about this dram.

Finish: Some spice transitions us into some dry sherry fruits. The salt follows through. Malt and peat linger nicely too. Medium long and enjoyable.

This is a great introduction to Springbank. It’s a well-crafted whisky which is both lush and mellow. Each element of the whisky is distinctive and crisp. These elements culminate nicely, and offer a hearty, youthful, and vibrant dram.
