Archer
Connoisseur Archer Tasting note

Archer gave this whisky 89 points
Color
Yellow gold
Nose

Der Duft einer Bergwiese im Frühling, dazu ein frischer Obstsalat aus Mandarinen, Orangen, Ananas und Äpfeln, beträufelt mit Zitrone - und dann aber auch, zuerst im Hintergrund, dann immer deutlicher hervortretend, Salz und Pfeffer, Muskat, Currygewürz, Eichenwürze... Salzwasserbenetzte und langsam in der Sonne trocknende Kieselsteine. Fruchtig-frisch und salzig zugleich. 

Taste

Direkt sind die Blumen und die Früchte aus der Nase auf der Zunge, einladend, wohlschmeckend. Etwas Lavendel und eine Note, die nach frischer Wäsche auf der Leine duftet. Aber auch auf der Zunge kommt dann Salz, kommt Pfeffer, kommen weitere Gewürze wie Paprika und Curry, und es ergibt sich ein schönes Wechselspiel aus Süße und Salzigkeit/Würze. Wieder Auftritt der Kieselsteine, mundwässernd. Mit der Zeit Kakaonoten, Nougatschokolade. 

Finish

Mittellang, würzig, salzig, fruchtig, mit einem kleinen Hauch Rauch.

Comments

Sehr abwechslungsreicher und spannender Malt, der Fruchtigkeit und Würze hervorragend verbindet - und das für unter 40,-

ARDBERG gave this whisky 90 points

A bang for your buck - on the same level as the current Ben Nevis 10, Talisker 10, Benromach 10.

Expert Senior Goethe Tasting note

Goethe gave this whisky 82 points
Color
Pale gold
Nose

Green apple, grass, lemon (also some oranges), salted fudge, some hints of "farming Springbank" smell is going on (not as much as in previous versions).

Taste

The farming smell/taste keeps on going, hints of smoke, lemon, sweet salt.

Finish

Medium. Oak, sweet smoke and hints of Springbank farm.

Comments

This is again a substantial craft presetation. Everything is very well intermeshed, but not as obvious and not as emphasized as they did with the old label (batch, ...whatever).

This one is very round, to round (kind of bad? No!), kind of not as springbankish as it used to be. I miss the Springbank farm layer.

Concerning price/performance ratio: 9/10
