Official tasting notes:
Nose: Sweet and syrupy from the outset, the Springbank character is immediately prominent. Hints of honeycomb, treacle sponge and ginger-nut fuse with a fruity, strawberry undertone. Aromas of parma violets and raisins develop over time.
Palate: Chopped hazelnuts and liquorice predominate the subtle smokiness from the peat. The maple syrup sweetness from the nose follows through, with a touch of wild berries and blackberries.
Finish: A creamy, velvety finish with a salty note. Wood shavings, burnt embers and milk chocolate round off this malt.
