Michael Jackson

Nose
Distinctly fruity. Peaches. Sherryish. Nutty.
Palate
Big flavours-and it's packed with them. Liquorice. Salt. Spice merchants. Dusty.
Finish
Big, spicy explosion.
Comment
Springbank in pyrotechnic form. The sherry doubles the flavours, but arguably also softens the Campbeltown character.

Dave Broom

Nose
Amazingly buttery; butterkist popcorn/crème caramel/tablet. Water opens it and rings out some dry smoke, sultana and charred oak.
Palate
Mouthfilling, complex. Sweet, then unfolds and dries: date loaf, black olive, smoke, caramelised fruits.
Finish
Leather, long, great balance.
Comment
The sweetest Springbank I've ever tried. Has the extra dimension that elevates great malts from good.
