The Springbank Cuvee 1965&1993/2004 (46%, Murray McDavid, Marriage of Fresh Sherry 1965 and Bourbon 1993, Cask#MM0406, 736/1224b.)
Received two bottles today. Can't wait to taste it. The label indicate it was the last award winning 1965 bottling. As far as I remember, I gave that one a 91 high score. Will the Jim's magic appear again in this marriage bottleing?
Quite dark color, almost golden brown. I heard that it contains the last cask of 1965 MMCD had. Thus a reasonable guess the ratial is 1:3.
Nose is quite sweet, sherry influence. Clear Maltiness , Citrus Fruit. A little bit Chacolate. Adding water bring out more fruitiness.
Taste: Smooth, Oil, Short, Fruity.
It not really like a young Springbank, very enjoyable, lots of nose to discover. Much better than recent young OB bottling. Almost beat my be-loved Balvenie 25yo OB. Score 87.
