  • Intro:

    Distilled in 1996 and bottled in 2007, this Cadenheads bottling of Springbank spirit comes to us after maturation in a Cream Sherry Butt. Bottled at cask strength with no coloring or filtering, this old old look to the past should be quite interesting.

  • Nose:

    Creamy indeed. Sweet, perhaps sickly so, but sherry forward is the right descriptor. Honey, cream, bright berry notes and some fig.

  • Taste:

    Sweet on the palate, medium mouth feel. Pleasant oak meets caramel, bright apricot, fig, blackberry and some cherry. Light caramel character blends very well with the malt.

  • Finish:

    Long finish, growing a bit tart. Some faint ash character, complementary to the sweet sherry notes.

  • Overall:

    Enjoyable, but a bit much in some aspects. The nose is so sweet, and the sherry leans to a tartness at times that some drinkers (myself included) may find strange.

  • Score:

    6
