Following the recent renaissance at Springbank any addition to the standard offering is always something to be happy about, so this cask strength 12yo (matured in 60% first fill and 40% refill sherry hogsheads) will be welcomed with open arms. Initial reports are good on this one.

Nose: Very rich and lush with strong toffee and caramel notes to begin with. The nose then develops to really thick treacle with heavy notes of marmalade. This whisky has a really "meaty" nose with some hints of cinnamon and smoke.
Palate: An amazingly full bodied whisky, rich with a thick and oily texture. It has a very rich taste of oranges, tangerines and clementines as well as a hint of cocoa.
Finish: Sweet and very rich, long finish with a hint of smoke.

Excellent aroma and flavour but I found the finish sulpherous, which is a shame for such an otherwise respectable whisky. Still worth checking out. The smell reminds me of chocolate pudding, strangely. It really explodes onto the palate. Challenging stuff.

It took me nearly a third of the bottle to really get into this but now that I have it's one of my favourites - so so complex and delicious
