Springbank has become the darling of the secondary market. Older bottlings like this one rarely surface: Cask strength, single cask, all natural and an extraordinary age statement... and when you add Adelphi to the title you know you're onto something special. Remember, these are arguably the new Macallans, so expect further long term upside. 58.8% Alc./Vol. One only from a private collection. Bottled in 2004 from an outturn of 425 bottles.

Collectors note: Some minor indents and markings to the outer box. The back label on the bottle is slightly lifted.

Other reviews... Colour: bronze amber. Nose: lots of dried fruits (pear, apricot, pineapple). It then gets curiously meaty like a Mortlach or a Glenlossie. Some heather, tea, leather, tobacco… Rather complex! A great old one that doesn’t smell old at all. Mouth: punchy attack, on dried cake and candy sugar. Develops on some peaty and farmy notes, crystallised oranges, hot chocolate… Some notes of coconut. Very long finish, perhaps a bit drying and getting austere but very good.
