Nose: A smouldering, oily nose with hints of heather root, allspice and a touch of charred oak. Manuka honey and pepper.
Palate: Peppery, spicy palate with big, creaking oak and a touch of salted caramel. Peat smoke arrives as the palate develops, with a touch of baked apple.
Finish: Baking spices and caramel. A little treacle and mixed herbs.
Overall: An oily, coastal, classic Springbank.
