This is a 10 year 100 proof expression from Springbank which is bottled at 57% ABV.
Nose: Clean, crisp heavily salted malt with mild bananas, butterscotch, and green tea.
Palate: Big kick of pepper and spice up front as it hits the tongue followed by fresh barley and edamame with surprisingly little Springbank funk. Fairly light and simple overall.
Finish: Green tea lingers with a bit of oak and cola.
Rating: 85/100 – Pretty standard Springbank expression for me – simple, but enjoyable with some odd notes to make it a bit more intersting.
Value for the money: This retails between $60-$70 I believe, and I think that’s a pretty fair price for what you get.
