Springbank 12 yo (bottled 2014) Green, 46 %

This Springbank is only made from bourbon casks. 9000 bottles were made. The nose reminded me of spirit at first. Then barley, fresh hay and grass, oak and very light peat behind the smell of lemons and the salty touch.

Much more fruit on the palate. Still a bit rough though, and still a lot of citrus notes and salt. Some light peat comes around in the finish behind the citrusy and salty notes.

Fun and different Springbank. I feel like being on an Island and the Highland at the same time. Definitely an outdoor whisky! I will rate this 87/100 (21/21/22/23).
