Member Ratings and Notes
Nose of anise and fruity bubblegum. Palate is sweet -- with white chocolate. A lighter whisky. Some anise and nondescript spice. Finish is quite long. Water brings out greater sweetness. Overall this is enjoyable, and different and distinct enough to be a Springbank (tasting this blind, I identified it as such, bonus points). B/B+
N: Light Apple, spirituous, a little burnt hair.  Bananas!!!
P: I like to eat, eat, eat apples and bananas.  I like to ote, ote, ote oh-ples and bo-no-nos.
F: Gets really tart and fruity, like Sour Patch Kids candy.   Young and hot. 
Complex but not so drinkable.
