This Scotch was so unexpectedly good I wanted to share my review. I'm tempted to make the 20 my next purchase. The coal roasted malts really stand out, but are not overstated. I upload several more reviews to my site, though a few are bourbons. My wife bought me 4 scotches for valentines day, but I did buy her a years worth of couple dance lessons. Have a great day!
This was an unexpected early valentines from my wife, and I must say I’m a lucky man.
“Springbank Distillery is unique. It is the oldest independent family owned distillery in Scotland.” Another distinctive quality comes from the coal roasting of their malts, a tradition left over from the sucessful days of the nearby mines (Murray).
taste - unexpectedly cool to begin, morning dew, honeydew, balanced herbs, light on peat, malts bring out sweetness, stone smooth finish, perfectly balanced leaving you wanting more.
smell - musk, marine, salts, bogs, sugar cane, earth and stone; phenomenal!
look - sandy beach, hay, dilute yellow ochre
rating - 9
price - $40 - $60
