Springbank 14 Years Old 2000 27.108 A savoury experience! (53.2%, SMWS, Refill Bourbon Barrel, 174 Bottles, 2015)

SMWS 27.108 a savoury experience!

Although there was a lot to like in the flavours of this Springbank expression from SMWS, I found it a little too rough around the edges for my liking. Too vinegary on the nose and too much liquorice presentation on the palate that suggested not the most active of casks to me. At the end of the day there was still plenty of good Springbank character in here to keep this interesting or it would have scored much lower. 79/100
