Springbank 12 Year Cask Strength

I last gave tasting notes on Springbank 10 Year single malt whisky, and just wanted to follow up with notes for the bottle of Springbank 12 Year Cask Strength (54.3%) I currently have on the shelf at the bar.

Tasting Notes

Appearance:
Red-gold

Nose:
Rich, pungent
Heated melted butter, toffee, butterscotch, cinnamon, peat, hints of sherry, dried fruits, salty coastal notes

Palate:
Steady intensification
Sweet, sour, creamy turning to ashy mouthfeel, vanilla pudding, soft smoke, buttery

Finish:
Long, intense
Chocolate, honey, ash, woody

One of my favorite cask-strength whiskies. I'm quite looking forward to trying a bottle from the next batch.
