Color
Yellow gold
Nose

Apple, peach, vanilla, peat, pineapple, banana and caramel.

Taste

A very ashy kind of peat. Apple and peach.

Finish

A marshmallow sweetness which is not very common for Springbank. Dry peat.

Comments

Compared it to an older version from 2013. Clearly a much sweeter sherry influence and also the more ashy kind of peat stands out. Less of that typical fatty Springbank profile and less peppery. 

Still a great bang-for-your-buck entry level whisky, but the 90+ scores are too much for me.

Excellent! All the markers you expect from a typical Springbank, such as farmy notes, good fermentation, traces of peat, coastal notes, a malty core with enough citric fruits to lift it: a good dose of mandarins and mango, both on the nose and palate. With the typical fizziness in the finish. Comments: more towards exotic fruits than previous releases. Another improvement, the only standard bottling which improves year by year! At least for me. Best value for my money
