Chaps,

received my two bottles of Springbank 32 yesterday and enjoyed the fisrt mouthful shortly after.

Tasting notes from the Springbank Society pages (http://www.springbankdistillers.com/soc ... =6&i=9&t=9) descibe it thus:

SPRINGBANK 32 year old

AGE 32 years old
WOOD TYPE Refill Sherry Butts
DISTILLED 1971
BOTTLED September 2004
STRENGTH 46% ABV
OUTTURN 2400 x 70cl

TASTING NOTE

COLOUR Light Gold

NOSE The presence of cinnamon, vanilla and coconut are the result of 32 years maturing in re-fill sherry casks. These wood extracts combine beautifully with subtle lavender, a hint of the sea and delicate fruits to give a very complex whisky.

PALATE Initially very oily, the taste soon mellows into rose petals and soft orchard fruits.

FINISH The velvet sweetness of the palate lingers on in the finish.


Personally I don't get the cinnamon, but it is one of the most floral Springbanks I've ever had, reminiscent of a aged Rosebank. Very smooth on the palate, and softens nicely with water
