Tasting Notes:
Producer's Note

Colour: Golden honey

Nose: - Initial aromas of liquorice are followed by poached pears, chocolate, cream and marzipan. Springbank’s traditional earthy and coastal influence qualities also make an appearance.

Palate: There is no mistaking the red wine tannins from the Gaja Barolo casks, complemented by earthy and woody notes. Swedish lingonberries and rhubarb crumble give the whisky
some sweetness and a touch of sea salt also comes into play.

Finish:This is like raspberry ripple ice cream but combined with peat and spices and a medium dry finish.
  

Customer Reviews:(1 review)
I'm frankly amazed this is a 9yo given the complexity in this whisky. There are some really odd notes that I haven't found in another whisky before (although I've probably only tried a couple of dozen single malts). I don't get chocolate or raspberry but the earthy, woody, almost mossy fragrance dominates the palate for me. There's something like cedar too and a lovely amount of peat. I've not tried a Springbank before but have hit a corker here and will definitely be trying more.
