  3. lincolnimp scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    I didn`t bother with water for this one , the interplay of flavours is really good, a little rough but very entertaining and the fruit orange note is really nice.
    • Nose
      This smells like a heavy full bodied spirit, honey, orange and mango mixed with peat and it is a little farmy with it.

      Some sherry is evident and also a little spice with the orange notes growing.
    • Taste
      Nice mouthfeel, fat and chewy on the palate with the orange notes there from the start and sweet but it is also quite dry and on the whole almost cloying (almost).

      The sweetness goes a little after a while and some roughness creeps in followed by a little bitterness but it is ok.

      There is a battle between the sweet fruit and the oak all the way but the sweetness wins out in the end and more stewed fruit emerges.
    • Finish
      Long chewy and the peat is in the background.

  6. Thermidor scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    I'm not at all crazy about Springbank usually, and admit to having had nasty preconceived notions of how this one would work for me, but it's the bee's knees, really.
    • Nose
      A certain "old style" about it. I smell the springbank sour fruit with aspirin, along with mature oak, pineapple and flinty smoke. Leather and grapefruits. A bit sandy too. Water pushes the cask influence to the side, letting the distillate shine better. Now there's sand and sweet lemons.
    • Taste
      Sandy chalkiness. A very full body, with faint leather and something sweet. The taste is altogether peculiar and atypical. Water makes the body better, fattier, and pushes out some dried malts. It is slightly sharp and youthful for a 21yo, though.
    • Finish
      After the fruity sweetness subsides, some c-vitamin tablets and power cables (dirty rubber, copper, etc.) come up. There's even a smidgen of salted liquorice and some metals, in a nice old coins kind of way.

  8. tuntime scored this whisky 93 points Expert Junior

    Fruity Springbank nose that turns soft and beautifully scented. The sherry is so well integrated. 

    Massively soft on the palate. Wowee. This might be the most easeful high proof whisky I've ever had. 

    After all the anticipation I'm very happy with this. So damn easy to drink.

    The Whiskynerds found a real beauty. Just have the feeling this harkens back to old school whisky.
