Tasting Notes

"With a balance that is top-notch, this Springbank opens up on citrus notes, with ripe, luscious oranges leading the way. The peat influence is surprisingly mellow. The palate is properly oily, with a light touch of brine and tobacco leaves. There's some vanilla and honey too, but they are secondary. The finish is drying with a touch of salt."
