Dram Review: Springbank Aged 32 Years

[46.0%・32 Years Old・Distilled in 1971・Bottled in 2004・ Official Bottling・Limited Release of 2,400 Bottles]

Nose:

Immaculate malt, creamed honey with all that beeswax just being extremely attractive with complementary notes of soft sandalwood, breakfast cereal and hints of ginger flowers and chalk.

Palate & Finish:

Lemon jam and passion fruit syrup atop this chewy cereal base, the grassy spirit is infused with fine, graceful infusion of wood, while notes of banana custard, golden syrup and honey comb continue to ooze out and fuse with the candle wax.

Creamy fruits and a buttery touch, the grassiness and barley softness of the spirit still manage to linger with a mineral sweetness.

Thoughts:

A nose that would launch a thousand ships.

The wholesomeness of the Springbank spirit with all the regional goodness beautifully oak seasoned.

I wouldn’t say this about just any distillery but I could make a case that this dram right here is an exemplary testament that Springbank distillate are more likely to weather through the test of time and become something extraordinary.
