    • Nose
      The typical oily fruitiness: Papaya and pineapple. Peat, cherry, stewed pear, grass and vanilla. Later apple.

      Peat, pineapple, mango, chili pepper, caramel and herbs.

      Chili pepper, peat, peach, mango, caramel, gingerbread and a rum-like touch of apple.

  3. DramGoodLife scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    It has so many Springbank elements going on but has a lot of unique distillery character. This is a spirit driven dram which works so well. Great beginning to the core range.
    • Nose
      So obviously Campbeltown, it has that classic Springbanky nose to it. Earthy, mineraly, limestone like. Coastal air all blowing onto sticky grapes. Cracking nose
    • Taste
      Big and powerful, salty and mineraly, some little hints of coal smoke. It has a sweet raisin note on the top. Plenty of wood spice going on as well. 
    • Finish
      Cigar smoke and limestone just going and going.
