[46.0%・30 Years Old・Lombard Bottling・ Limited Release]
Feels dated but carries the surprisingly endearing notes of wood and mothballs, with soft fruits, pepper and other dried spices. The malt feels a bit green as well.
Palate & Finish:
The dram is really driven by soft fruits, banana jam with some other fruity enzymes followed by a clean layer of white oak.
Slightly drying towards the finish, with hints of white peaches.
A rather courteous Springbank from 1960s if I were not mistaken, I find it rather lovely actually but it does feel bottle aged and a tad too opened, if you know what I mean..
Thank you Derek for the dram, it’s much appreciated..
