SPRINGBANK 1992 - ADELPHI

Springbank 1992 17yo 54,3% cask#132, 257 bottles, Adelphi

Golden straw

Nose:
Heavy oil, sweet smoke, some fruit, brint and salt. More oily and they should start drilling for the stuff.

Taste:
Clear tell-tell Campeltown character here.
Did they mislabel this one Springbank when it should have been Longrow?
Mouthcoating diesel oil feel, peat, barley, coconut, the veggie rows in the supermarket and maybe some stale beer (in a good way). Something clearly coastal about this one as well...
A medium/long finish with more peat, pepper and sweet barley.
Reminds me of a walk on the pier in windy weather.

A cracking 'Springer'!

88/100!
