Noses of grass, butterscotch and a good amount of candle wax with a sweet sherry background. The sherry on was nice as it was too sweet. There was stewed apples and pears on the palate but with a bit of spiciness that gave it another dimension. The finish is a bit dry consisting of wax and hay.
Tastes of springbank. Nice resinous sherry with grass/ hay notes that was downright enjoyable. I've havent tasted the Springer 21 OB yet but this would make an interesting head to head.
Head to Head Update:
Springbank 21 vs Moidart 21. You can definitely see the similarities between the two but the Springer 21 was much more balanced and had a sweet mentholated mintiness that is great.
