Springbank 1968 20 Years Samaroli - Ageing Monography, from the Ageing Monography series the fantastic 1968 Springbank bottled in just 660 bottles in 1989 at 50%.
Nose: starts deliciously fruity and floral, as expressive as a virtualy unsherried old Springbank can get. Huge notes of fresh pineapples and coconuts (smells almost like pina colada), then ginger and nutmeg, sweet white wine (Sauternes), praline and peanut butter, faint whiffs of wood smoke and pine resin as well as fermenting grass. Exuberant on the nose, let’s hope the palate will match it.
Mouth: punchy, less extravagant now but maybe better balanced as well. Apple pie and tinned guavas, crystallised grapefruits, white pepper, grated coconut and nutmeg. Perfect oak. Finish: long, with a welcomed bitterness (lemon zest) on top of all the rest.
Comments: excellent, albeit maybe just a tad less complex than other old Springbanks (the OB’s for example). SGP:653 - 90 points.
