  1. Calmar scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    A wonderful sample of long sherry aging, deep, complex, perfectly balanced, with the total dominance of sherry, the base, nevertheless, clearly manifests itself in development.
    • Nose
      Open, dry, noble wood, old furniture, coffee, roasted nuts, prunes, black raisins, dried fruits, herbarium, notes of dark beer, old leather goods, pipe tobacco, very diverse, rich in shades and tones, velvety.
    • Taste
      Dense, saturated, oak, sweet confectionery notes, cola, coffee, burnt caramel, burnt crackers, baklava, burnt jam, mineral-metal acidity, earthy tones, industrial and sulfuric motifs are manifested in the development.
    • Finish
      Spicy, refreshing, oak, old leather goods, cola, metallic acidity, pu er, prunes, sulfur-mineral notes are gaining strength in development.

      Spicy and peppery. Subtile sherry notes present in the end. Some light smoky sweet wood .

  3. chlinatele scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Mmh in the nose very nice. Not typical Springbank I think. Sulfur on the palate. I do not like it that way. Reminds me more of Speyside than Campbeltown .....
    Thank you Malt-Whisky.ch for the small sample
