Whisky Review: Springbank 7 Years Old 2007 Open Day 2015

Springbank-7-Years-Old-2007-Open-Day-2015

What they say

Distilled at Springbank in November 2007 and matured for a full 7 years in fresh Sauternes hogshead, 1 of 309 bottle at cask strength of 56.9% bottled and released on 21st May 2015 for Springbank Open Day.

What I say

From Moxies’s Tasting with Moxie – a Festivus for the rest of us.

My tasting notes:

  • Light golden amber (6/20), slow-forming medium sized droplet tears with fine trails
  • Nose: Cleaning products, floral, lavender? with a backing of fruit and spice, vanilla, musty, caramel, oaky wood, sweet and fruity, chalky and mineralic, lemon pledge, a lactic note (farmyard) and malty
  • Taste: Zesty lemon citrus and honey, thick and syrupy on the palate, crystallized ginger, spiced grapefruit pith, orange zest, sweet almond or soy milk, pineapple, mango and papaya tropical fruits, gentle smoke with engine oil and exhaust fumes
  • Finish: Medium-long, zesty, spicy, drying sweet & sour

Overall

Rich and smooth but very very citrus zesty, an odd fruit tinge – wine cask? (tasted blind)

Score 87/100

Don’t take my word for it:
