The taste is very powerful. Not in the alcohol, but in the taste. Very dark. Oak, earth and peat is dominant factors. Some dark fruits in the far background as well. In the finish the oak is still present, alongside ash and burned caramel sweetness.
A really nice Springbank if you are into the ‘heavier’ stuff. Very complex with a fine balance. I will rate this 91/100 (23/22/23/23).
