46% abv, €50, single malt, non-chill filtered, natural colour

Nose: sweet, toffee, malty, fresh, a hint of smoke, slightly briny, fruit, apples, toffee apples, citrus, orange zest, sour unripe berries
Palate: sweet, toffee, spicy, white pepper, fruit, citrus, sweet blood-oranges
Finish: sweet, toffee, marmalade, slight bitter, medium long

Conclusion:  I had high expectations from this dram. It is not bad, but not something I will run towards the store for in order to get me one. She gets better over time though…

More info: the peatiest spirit dripping from the stills at the Springbank distillery, only distilled twice (opposed to three times for Hazelburn and two-point-something for Springbank).
