Review: Springbank, Oloroso Sherry Butt, 12 yr. oldMay 25th, 2010
Springbank, Oloroso Sherry Butt, 12 year old, 51.5%, $113
Full sherry impact, but the Springbank character does manage to fight its way through it. Thick, sweet notes of toffee and molasses are accentuated by dark raisin, golden raisin, prune, date nut cake, and fruit gum drops. Nutty, briny, rhum agricole finish. A Springbank for sherry lovers. (From a single cask, 591 bottles, exclusively for the U.S.)
