SPRINGBANK - 21 Year OldCampbletown Malt Whisky
The nose has a salty pungency; the sherry is deeper and more dominant and a sweet maltiness filters through.
On the palate, the whisky is markedly smoother, smokier and sweeter.
The finish is complex: any number of tunes are being played at once, but nowhere near so loud or well defined as the 15 year old, with the sherry acting as the muffler.
Heavy, earthy: a connoisseur's dram.
