After work drinks and dinner with a mate.
#Springbank12#caskstrength at 54.2%. This is the Jan '17 release. Wow. It's a big, meaty #dram . The nose is iodine, peat, red fruit and pine needles. A rich fruity palate awaits with the sherry cask maturation, I found a few decent drops of water really opened up the experience with with an oily, character with vanilla and buttery notes and a little chocolate on the finish. The finish is long, sweet and peppery with a hint of smoke and that ever present #Cambeltownmalt saltiness.
This is an untamed beauty, particularly in comparison to the 10 and the 15. Take a good 30 mins on this #singlemalt and take it all in and consider what is going on in your mouth, which is a fair bit. Certainly more complex than my 10yo bottle.
I can't imagine leaving the house without a Flask from @xflasks when I go to see my friends. It's all oeeeh and aaaaah when I take this with me. LOVE IT 😄. Use #promocode#WGNL12 to get your personal #xflasks with a 12% discount ➡️ xflasks.com
I am loving these 14 year old age statements, especially my recent purchase of the Balvenie 14 year old Peat Week Bottling! It’s one of the first expressions from Balvenie made from 100% peated barley. Fully matured in American oak casks, the taste of floral tropical fruit and classic speyside honey and vanilla work well with the floral peat smoke that shines through on the palate, it’s nothing like you would expect. It has a long and soft creamy linger that is well balanced with the gentle peat smoke. A must try Balvenie if given the chance 🥃
