Wine finished wonder

The chaps at Springbank have another winner - this Longrow 14yr old was matured in bourbon casks for 11yrs and then dropped in Burgundy hogsheads for 3 years.

Nose: Nutty and quite chocolate-rich, with notes of buttertoffee, cranberries, jam on toast, a hint of gunpowder, and some maple spice. Palate: Sweet oak on the palage, with hints of toffee popcorn, salted butter, star anise, sweet cereals and a little Christmas pudding. Finish: Oaky and spicy, hints of nutmeg, ginger and toffee apples.
