Springbank Lite! More floral than your typical Springbank. First edition was better than subsequent version. A little youthful. I would have preferred about 10-12 year on this one.

I like it very much, there is some of the distinctive Springbank malt taste there but it is smoother with less peat and salt. If you like the taste of Springbank in general this should be a safe bet.

A 12-year old will apparently be released this year when the stocks reach that age.
