Aroma: sweet peat compliments figs and apricot jam. Honey, wax, smoke and coal.
Palate: really sweet at the beginning - honey with hazelnuts, then wood and smoky tones. Fruity but salty, later on. Lemon, grapefruit, sea shoe - salt, wet stones. Finish: hazelnuts with peat and earthy notes.
Comments: I never had really bad Springbank. This one is no exeption. Nice, complex, powerful.

The ratings system that we use is based on personal opinion and reflects only a personal momentary impression about the tasted whiskey. We do not represent any producers of whiskey and we are not in the whiskey business ourselves. However, we have our personal sympathies for particular whiskeys. We are human, therefore the ratings that we give are subjective. Furthermore, they are given with comparisons to other whiskeys in mind. We decided to use convienent and widely used 100 points system.
