  1. schero scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    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

    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

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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
