This has all the great old Springbank(y) notes that I love. Lots of vegetal dry grass notes with just the perfect amount of sweetness and a tinge of spice. Very smooth on the palate with lots of yellow fruits and toffee sweetness. You taste the oak but it's very subtle and dry. There's a long lingering spearmint finish to this. The sweetness in this was perfect and very inviting. It carried through from nose to palate to finish and worked extremely well with the wood, spice and minty notes.
