  1. Beatroute Malt scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    Superb nose with caramel and toffee, mild ginger, salty, hint of smoke. Sweet palate, with mild spices, slightly astringent, hint of green apples, long lasting. Lovely stuff!

    What a powerful fresh sherry springbank. 22.5-22.5-22.5-22.5

    Tasted at Gathering 2018. Beautiful Springbank for the age and the sherry melds well.

    • Nose
      91 91
      Very heavy, intense sherry with a hint of peat, which is only suggested. Burnt brown sugar, red fruits, cherry, sour fruits.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Very smooth and friendly, even without water. Short arrival and development. Very closed. WIth water it is extremely sweet. Baked fruits with a lots of sugar, umami, savory.
    • Finish
      91 91
      The whole event is mainly about the finish, with the notes mentioned from the taste. It is about 10%/60%/30% with 30% being the finish.

    The fragrance is rich: dried fruits, expressed plum, it eventually seems to dry, passing into the fragrance of prunes. In taste, too, the plum, this time in the form of compote. Finish with ostrinkoy, spices and jam.

    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.

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

  15. detachedblue scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

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