Springbank 16 yo (1991/2007), Rum Wood, 54,2%

Review #546
This is from the series “Wood Expressions” and 5100 bottles were made. Sweet overripe plums in the smell. Some oak and sugars. Very sweet indeed! Some fruity sweetness in the end.

So sweet at first in the taste. The Rum really shines through, and the alcohol kick you get fits the whisky perfectly! Some brown sugar in the finish. The oak lies, with just a hint of tannins, in the background. Some sweet raisins as well.

If you enjoy Rum and sweet Springbank whiskies, then you probably would love this! The smell was a bit too much for me (Rum wise), but the rest was almost perfect! Not that I didn’t enjoy the smell! I will rate this 89/100 (21/23/23/22).
