Whisky Springbank 16 years old Rum Finish, gift box, 700 ml
Whiskey pale gold color.
The taste of whiskey is very well balanced. Felt shades of honey and sugar, malt, vanilla, raisins combined with notes of wood. In lingering aftertaste subtle sweetness with hints of citrus and green apples.
Initial fruit and sweet flavors of whiskey with notes of rose, toffee and caramel are gradually being replaced creamy and buttery nuances with hints of lemon mousse.
Whisky is great as a digestif.
