Springbank 1997 vintage 10 year old (Cask #97/613), 58.2%

Price: $75 Issue: Fall 2008 Reviewer: John Hansell

Aged in a re-charred sherry butt. Sweet, but not cloying, with plenty of fruit throughout. Toffee, vanilla fudge, roasted chestnuts, and nougat, enhanced by glazed peaches, burnt pineapple, dark cherry pits, and subtle anise. Gripping charred oak tannins emerge mid-palate and continue on the finish detracting from an otherwise very pleasant experience. (Bottled exclusively for Binny's Beverage Depot)
