An interesting experimental release from the folks at Springbank - distilled in November 2001 and bottled in January 2012 after maturation in Rundlets and Kilderkins, which are small 60 and 80 litre casks. It's therefore had lots of wood contact over its 10 years and combined with Springbank's regular rustic charm it's a bit good. Noticeable smoke, brine & an oily texture.

      The small casks have left an impression of accelerated maturity, with coal smoke, cloves, young oak, and caramel on the rich nose. The palate is big and bold, with a sprinkling of salt, then more youthful wood, milk chocolate, and honey, while the finish is long and slightly tarry.

    • Nose

      Nice and big, with soot and a honeyed / syrup edge, then some sticky dark fruit, maybe damson; then some camphor, oily bandages and a whiff of seaspray. Develops juicy apple notes, toast and some waxy and heathery notes with time in the glass. Forward and assertive, certainly not shy. Very appealing. Water tames it a bit, emphasising sweeter oak notes.

    • Palate

      Big and full. Sweet attack initially, like shredded wheat with honey; a hit of soot and smoke, then peppery spices as the oak steps up a gear. Cadbury’s Fruit & Nut. Salt chocolate. Old-fashioned rhubarb & custard boiled sweets. Bonfire smoke & spices gradually assume control. Water seems to make it more youthful, a flaxy, earthy note appearing alongside the honey.

    • Finish

      Long, dry and briney at full strength. Earthy and a little hotter with water.

    • Comment

      A vibrant dram, headstrong, with a compelling wild side. Don’t bother with the water.

  • Tasting Notes by Billy

    • Nose

      Seaweed, brine, cracked slates, custard, sweet smoke and a meaty behind. A bit dirty too - sump oil floating on a still ocean...Palate: Oily, salty, sour boiled sweets, spicy wood, cloves, cinnamon, dried cherries, raisins and a bit of light fruitcake, all surrounded by a lightly smoky tang.Finish: Cherry bakewells, more woody spice, some liquorice, soft vanilla sugar and a touch of brine.

    • Comments

      This is the sort of oily maritime dram that made me fall in love with Springbank. Roll in some dried fruit and a nice base of smoke and you've got a rather tasty dram.
