Springbank Oloroso Sherry Butt 12 year old, 51.5%

Price: $113 Issue: Fall 2010 Reviewer: John Hansell

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 gumdrops. Nutty, briny, rhum agricole finish. A Springbank for sherry lovers. (From a single cask, 591 bottles, exclusively for the U.S.)
