58% ABV

Mashbill: 100% malted barley

Aged For: 9 Years

Cask Type: Sauternes (I think first fill)

Color: Golden Copper

Drank: Neat, in a glencairn.

Nose: Lime and citrus, salted raspberries, tangy, peat, ginger, and pineapple.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied

Palate/Taste: Toffee, peat, apples, citrus, cinnamon, sour funk, earthy.

Finish: Medium warmth and long finish, chili peppers, leather, tangy smoke, funk, and sour grapes.

Thoughts: It’s got a sour citrus tang going on that’s truly unique and tasty. Not something I’d reach for every day, but still great. Slightly overpriced here in the U.S. but I support Springbank’s methods and transparency enough to swallow the cost.

Score: 86 out of 100
