Member Ratings and Notes
n:  Swimming pool in flower patch (or vice versa).  Very nice.
p:  Velvety, mint syrup.  Fields of lavendar.  Subtle yet fully developed. 
Obviously more floral than most Springbanks.  I found more new-make type notes of lemon-grass and varnish than usual also.  For a 22 year old, this seemed rather weak on the oak side.  This might have been a multi-refill cask.  It just didn't impart much flavor.  The goodness that makes it a B+ comes from the floral complexity and this is nicely pleasant to drink.  I don't recall any of the caramel or sweet peat notes though.... 
N:Sweet marshmallow fruits, white grape juice, spearmint and sweet fruit flovered bubblegum
P: Sweet tangy fruit flesh. Light smoke. Green pears.
F: Long sweet fruity cinnamon smoked finish
