Mortlach 12 year old

The nose on 43.4% expression is very floral with some wheaty breakfast biscuits and spicy notes.  The taste is very smooth with baked spiced apples (maybe even slightly burnt) caramel and honey.  The finish has some slow building heat along with some Bovril (salty / meaty) notes.  Reminded me of good Texas barbeque brisket with strong spice bark.  Overall a ittle too much burnt, salty and bitter notes with not enough sweetness to balance it for me.

    Springbank CV

    As of March 2013 Campbeltown remains the only whisky producing region of Scotland I haven't visited, and the more Springbank I taste the more I feel I am missing something.  The nose is sweet and smokey with milk chocolate and boiled sweets.  The taste is even sweeter than the nose suggests.  Light mouthfeel and quite smooth.  Some lemon notes as well.  The peat returns in the finish along with peppery spices.  Overall a very nice "gateway" peated single malt.  Good value too.
