Springbank 1965 23 Years Samaroli – Ageing Monography, ONLY 660 bottles made of this 1965 Springbank, the oldest in the Ageing Monography series selected by Mr Samaroli and bottled in 1989 at 50%.
Nose: very different, starting mainly on raw beeswax and ink rubber. Gets then more resinous, with also hints of motor oil and quite some linseed oil and waxed paper. Very different but extremely pleasant albeit more austere than the sherry versions.
Mouth: just as rich as the ‘sherries’ but more resinous, waxy, mineral and slightly peppery and cardboardy. Excellent bitterness.
Finish: long, mostly on lemon marmalade (bitterness again) with just faint hints of sweet mustard. Less sweet but certainly not less exciting. 92 points.
