Springbank, 1999 - 2009, Private Bottling

This Whisky is really amazing, the dark gold color, the fat body and the thick legs in the glass... 56.5 % of alcohol, but you don't feel it, it's deeply embedded in the flavors given from the Sherry cask. Very well balanced, especially if you keep in mind that it's just 10 yo.

Nose: Sweet, dried fruits, ginger, nuts

Taste: Creamy and smooth, Sherry, dark chocolate, hints of oak, oriental spices, bitter Orange

Aftertaste: Long and warming, dried fruits, Orange zest
