TASTING NOTES by SPRINGBANK:

Nose
Deliciously smooth and creamy like lemon cheesecake with notes of vanilla, citrus and crushed digestive biscuits.

Palate
Fruity; ripe peach and crisp, juicy red apples. The bourbon influence promotes notes of vanilla whilst there are hints of honey and orange rind with a developing undertone of liquorice.

Finish
Delicate, grassy freshness with subtle hints of honey and glazed dates.

Sniff:
Rather malty, lots porridge and grains. Some oak too, and a whiff of clay. Some sweet peaches come through after that, with a whiff of dried apple too. Slate, basalt and some sand. Rather coastal.

Sip:
The palate is surprisingly intense for a below 50% ABV. Quite some peppery heat, with a rather viscous mouthfeel. Olive oil, linseed oil, with oak shavings. Quite dry because of the intensity. It does get a bit sweeter, and more mellow when you give it some time. Then it starts to showing what is there. Peaches, apples, pears, some cloudy apple juice too.

Swallow:
The finish has a little bit of the Springbank funk, so straw, hessian, some old carpets. Mostly it’s barley and bread, some fruit and some oak.

This one has it’s ups and downs, in regards to flavors. There’s specific things that come to the front on the nose, the palate and the finish. It’s rarely the same things though. It feels a bit inconsistent.

What it does have going for it, is that all aspects of the whisky are rather tasty (or they smell good in case of the nose).
