Springbank Rum Wood Finish 16 year old 1991 vintage, 54.2%

Price: $160 Issue: Spring 2008 Reviewer: John Hansell

Pale in color, with a gold/green tinge. Exotic fruit (papaya, coconut, kiwi) with gentle sweet notes (vanilla, honey, pancake syrup, marshmallow), spiced with fresh, appetizing brine and anise. The brine lingers on the finish, as do some molasses toffee notes. Dynamic and well-rounded.
