Andytka3 gave this whisky 87 points

N- Although a shy Springbank that aren't as bold and expressive as some of their single cask releases, even so are at high par with well define characters. Freshly baked vanilla chocolate cake, classic spices with citrus oil, salted caramel and layer with infused mineral.


P- Caramelized ginger, pomerol and citrus oil, tropical fruit, some lychee, nutmeg and guava.


F- Medium, salty dry, full and rounded with sweet herbs smokes.

Color
Burnished
Nose

Strong alcohol burn, but if you are patient you will be rewarded with some cream sherry, Deglet Nour dates, greased machine parts, and peat.

Taste

Sticky Medjool dates (that is to say much sweeter and less caramel than the nose), fruitcake, peat of course, and Ricola drops.  

Finish

Short, coffee, leather.  Quite bitter for such a young whisky.  The finish is where this really fell short... no pun intended.

Comments

Not a sherry or peat monster, but that's why we're drinking Springbank right?

Color
Mahogany
Nose

Pungent alcohol, Sweet sherry, dates, beewax, almonds, all you expect from a sherried modern Springbank. Flawless.

Taste

Very sweet again, leather, dates, Licorice, milk chocolates.

Finish

Short to medium, OK for a whisky of 13 years. Coffee beans

Comments

It is a great whisky with not much flaws. A great value of money and a sherry monster.
