Nose

Vanille, spritzige Zitrusnoten, extrem süße Nase, Honig, Orangenmarmelade, die mineralische Salznote ist da aber hintergründig mit ständigem Aufblitzen, dabei spürt man auch immer wieder den ganz dezenten Rauch, insgesamt erinnert er an den Duft beim Schälen von Orangen, nur dass jetzt noch Vanillekipferl daneben liegen, Wasser bringt alles zusammen 

Taste

Hier auch vanillig süß, danach kommt die frisch geschälte Orange dazu, der Alkohol trägt den leichten Rauch in den Mund, der Malt hat Kraft, beißt aber nicht lokal sondern verteilt sich sehr gut im Mundraum, auch hier macht ihn Wasser sehr rund ohne seine Kraft zu zerstören 

Finish

Leichte Bitterkeit, Orangenschalen, mineralischer als zuvor, schöne Wärme, ein Zusammenspiel aus Zitrusnoten und Bitterkeit bleibt am Gaumen haften, mit Wasser hier zum dritten Mal sehr viel runder

WhiskySpring...

Well, I paid around 100 euro - agree its a bit steep for a 10 yo whisky, it should probably be priced around 50-60 euro.

 But as Springbank stated last year, most of the bottles will be flipped instantly - so why let the flippers take the margin.

Have you tasted it yet? 50 points!! gives some thoughts about the scorring in here....

This is sweet stuff! Traditional Dutch butter candy, yup look that up if you don’t know these candies. This dissapears rather quickly, followed by a bit of peat and citrus. A hint of vanilla. In the background some minerals and dieseloil. Cereals can be find here too.

Taste

Quite nice. The Dutch butter candies are here as well. Vanilla, a hint of liquorice. A bit oily too. Some peat and brine. A layer of honey. That is followed by a little bit of cookie dough.

Finish

Mid-long and drying. Quite salty too, some pepper and cinnamon. And a layer of sweetness from honey.

Comments

Quite surprising, since the first sip was actually a little disappointing, but luckily this changed pretty quickly. It got a lot better after that.

Mineralisch und salzig, ganz leicht dreckig; ausgesprochen süß! Vanille, Zitrone, mehr Salz, schöne maritime Noten, wirkt frisch und dezent fruchtig mit Zitrusaromen und Anklängen von Eiche bzw. feuchtem Holz;

Taste

Dezent rauchig, wunderbar maritim und frisch, Vanille und Zitrone und getrocknete Ananas, wieder ein klein wenig nasses Holz, vlt. verborgene Gewürze, kalkig und minerlaisch und irgendwo ein wenig "Grünzeug";

Finish

Lang und mächtig; wunderbar maritim mit schönen Vanille- und Zitrusnoten und dezenter Eichenfracht;

Comments

Ein wirklich toller Single Malt aus Campbelltown, besonders die maritime Note hat es mir angetan! 90+ P.

Fruity, sea breeze, hints of smoke, whiffs of leather, limestone, yellow fruits, lemons, peaches, quinces - very good

Taste

Oily, citrusy, lemony, minerals, salty - all very clean - great

Finish

Long and warm, zesty, lemony and more leathery

Comments

All very fresh and clean with some smoke - no dirty notes - more citrusy than the regular 10yo - thus worth having this too

Creamy. Quite dirty, much closer to the regular Springbank profile. Glace cherries. Slight chemical smoke. Marscapone. Stroopwaffel. Slightly floral. Nice mix of citrus and red fruits. Some saline notes floating around but you have to look for them.

Taste

 Quite thick and oily. I got a bit of dark caramel and tobacco. Wood smoke and fruit leather. Vanilla is still here, and the citrus, the red fruits have diminished a little. There’s a nice, sweet woody note, like maple syrup but drier. Right at the end I get some notes like Hall’s Honey & Lemon throat lozenges.

Finish

Long. The dirty, oily character kind of flairs and then fades.More of that sweet, dry woody flavour along with light fruits, mainly yellow apples, honey and then a burst of citrus oils.

Comments

This was a lovely one. It was very much a Springbank with quite a bit of the classic distillery profile to it. It had a good oily, dirty character to it while balancing this very well with its lighter, fruitier side.


A lovely, nicely balanced whisky and for my palate definitely the favourite of the two Local Barley bottles I was able to get a hold of, the addition of some sherry casks was a really good idea IMO.
