Dram Review: Springbank Aged 50 Years

[40.5%・Bottled in 2001・50 Years Old・Official Bottling・Limited Release of 580 Bottles]

Nose:

It is hard to believe how clean the nose fares for its age, crisp pears and mangoes, lightly floral with a nice brush of malt and just a hint of grilled vegetables.

Palate & Finish:

Succulent with dried fruits, the delivery is on the grassy side and is reserved in the most tender of ways.

A wonderful but fleeting dryness with a soothing touch of minerals to close.

Thoughts:

A dram that eases in its nuances, comforting and pure even at an advanced age but perhaps shows a touch of reluctance, an imperfection to some..
