  1. vlad78 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Bright varnish, a room where furniture is restored and leather is painted. It is not easy for light notes to break through. Sweet, with technical notes of paint and varnish. Very harmonious in this.

  3. Calmar scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Quite a simple and slightly diced whisky, the aroma here is perhaps the most interesting and revealed of all the components, the taste / finish is simpler and more straightforward, the style of the distillery, however, can be traced quite clearly.
    • Nose
      Discreet, moist, treated wood, lemon peel, mineral notes, monpensier candies, sweet lemonade tones, floral-fruity shades, grain, stone dust, coated tablets, Revit vitamins.
    • Taste
      Oily, rich, tart oak, young bark, peppery wave, grain, mineral notes, ginger, leather goods, tobacco.
    • Finish
      Spicy, refreshing, oak, lemonade shades, minerality, slight bitterness of bark, tobacco, leather goods.

  6. rdavek scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    One of my favorite Springbanks of the past 10 years. Not much elaboration necessary, all the Springbank markers that we know and love with no external intrusions. A must for any Springbank lover.

  7. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Typical sweet Springbank funk with atypical Springbank smoke infused (more of a Laphroaig-type smoke). Very nice. The finish does trail off uneventfully.

  8. Mannix65 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    a classic jumping bench for fans, unadulterated distillery character - looks more mature - I like it very much
    • Nose
      Salty sea breeze, lightly algae beach, a hint of soapy water, mineral aromas - citrus notes appear with ongoing ventilation
    • Taste
      Salt, moist moss, light smoke, maritime, vanilla - very creamy and soft, nevertheless very voluminous
    • Finish
      long, dry, salty, mineral

  11. whiskyinstitut scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    A very nice Springbank. But that is certainly only for true fans. There is a lack of complexity, but the existing mostly for Springbank typical notes come out all the more.
    • Nose
      Perfect combination of mineral Brennereicharakter, citrus notes and very light smoke, only very light vanilla, a little grassy to herbaceous
    • Taste
      Pleasant onset, not too strong and not too weak, light smoke, again mineral to maritime, becoming dry, citrus notes dominate the fruity side
    • Finish
      Smoke and mineral sweetness, salty, slightly bitter oak, the citrus notes play around the whole thing again

  12. Malinois did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Tasted at Spirits In The Sky 2017 9/13

    No notes, no score because I just wanted to make a first impression. Will open a bottel in a couple of months. Did enjoy it though
