Nose: Dark sugar, some rum elements, slightly sour, a hint of an overripe banana peel.
Flavour: Moor, sweet, gingerbread, ginger, citrus, sourish, some coconut bread in the finish.
Body: Oily, round, slightly rough dryness.
Comments: The finish made it a more accessible Springbank but I'd rather tasted an improvement.
