Springbank 14 yo Burns Malt  , 54.3% abv , £61.30 (TWB)sb_twb14

Nose: This one is lovely to start with as it displays a dirty sort if malty side. Got to love this, these moments are what make scotch so interesting and enticing. Add a   Some apples and damp wood, sprinkle some cinnamon and waxy notes, and you’ve got yourself a superb nose.

Palate : Salty and malty with a bit if smoke too. Light earthy peat layered on some fruit and  Brine. It’s also spiced with some sulphur, and nicely so.

Finish: sulphur-y. Salty with  Smoke and bits of peat.

This is just a lovely example of Springbank, with everything you can expect from a 14 year old. Salt, malt, peat, smoke, fruit. Winner.

Score: 88/100
