    EN:
    As a "Tale of Two Brothers" I tasted the Green Thistle head-to-head against the Batch 14 of the Springbank 12 CS of 2017 - Conclusion: While one (12CS) is enjoying his breakfast with fruit and honey sitting in the dark next plumps and dark chocolate crumbles among the groynes, contemplating the plaster on his thumb DE: As a "Two Unequal Brothers", I've tasted the Green Thistle head-to-head with 2017's Springbank 12 CS Batch 15. The conclusion: While one (12CS) enjoys his breakfast next to the remains of the campfire and freshly connects the cut on his finger, his older brother (100proof) with a bowl of plum compote and chocolate is already on the beach between the groynes and looks at it thoughtfully Plaster on his thumb ...
    • Nose
      EN:
      The Green Thistle 100 ° of 1995 shows thin legs running swiftly down, turning back to the dark shadowy copper at the bottom of the glass. A deep, warming sherry sweetness of an intense rum raisin chocolate bar with a high cocoa content, creamy creme brulee, and the next fried honey banana Asian restaurant team with lime as well as grapefruit, orange and a few cherries. Deep red roses and walnuts are slowly condensing down to the ginger, iodine and the smell of a plaster. Spicy smells in a wooden bowl. Stock photography Spicy smells in a wooden bowl. DE: In the Green Thistle 100 ° from 1995, thin spider legs quickly run back down into shady, dark copper in the glass. A deep, warm sherry sweetness of a hefty cocoa-flavored rum-raisin chocolate, creamy creme brulee and the honey banana from the Asia restaurant meet lime and grapefruit, oranges and a few cherries. Deep red roses and walnuts are concentrated in ginger, iodine and the smell of fresh patches. Together with strong oak wood, these spicy tones tickle like an old wall paneling on the nose, with a tart touch of tea leaves, malty black bread and warm plum compote in a wooden bowl.
    • Taste
      EN:
      On the palate, a quite distinct dryness makes its round, mainly noticeable at the edges of the tongue, but not all biting or astringent and only slightly woody, rather like a strong, creamy dark chocolate mousse. The rum raisins are here transformed into raisins and hazelnuts, dried rose petals, tobacco, berries and rosemary. These tones lead into the light of the leather, licorice, lime, in the foreground recognizable maritime taste, the iodine and salt, like on old groyne's head covered with shrimps in the morning sunshine - but rather viewed from a distance and the smell carried by a light breeze than standing amidst the wet, tarred poles, as sometimes seems to be the case with other, predominantly Islay single malts. DE: On the palate, a noticeable dryness rounds out, most noticeable at the edges of the tongue, but overall still not biting or astringent and barely woody, more like a creamy-dark chocolate mousse. The rum raisins are now converted to darker grape nut, dried rose petals, tobacco, berries and rosemary. The impressions flow into old leather, liquorice, limes, together again the recognizable Maritime, the iodine and salt, like an old, with mussels übersenter stage pile in the sunshine - however from a distance considered and in the gentle wind perceived, differently than with many Islays, where you have the impression of standing directly between the wet, tarred, old poles.
    • Finish

      The finish then shakes earthy and peppery flavors down the throat, filling it with honey, grapes, berries and raisin sweetness at the same time, which, duly balanced by some coal from a burned out cask, lingers on and ... DE: The finish then pushes earthy and peppery down the throat and fills it with honey, grape, berry and raisin sweetness, which, balanced by coal as from the burned out barrel, still remains and remains ...

  2. hs305 scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    [March, 2005]  I had another dram during a MaRa rarities tasting at Limburg.

    In
    my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50
    - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 95. 
    My notes state it is a fat and wood driven profile that is very delicious.  Most probably it contains casks much older than 12 years (around 20 to 25 years).There are several different batches of this release.

    [November, 1999]  I had this dram during a Springbank rarities tasting at
    Kyrburg.  In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50
    - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored this dram
    92,5.  My notes state a very dark colour and an intense sherry taste both in the nose and on the palate.  The finish is of medium length.  Some drops of water improve the dram, but be careful:  With too much water it flattens quickly...

    Definitely an upper level Springbank, the nose is great and on the palate it is hot and punchy. Really good stuff!
    • Nose
      Heavy, punchy, intensive notes of oak wood, dried fruits, dark fruits, some toffee and vanilla notes, bees wax
    • Taste
      Dried fruits again, nice oak wood notes, hot and oily, just a subtle sweetness, coffee, plums and a touch of citrus fruits
    • Finish
      Warm and long, smooth and nice burning

    Dry oak, less fruity and not as complex than expected. Though a solid whisky above average.

    Springbank
    12 yo 100 proof (50%, OB, European
    version, early 90’s)

    This
    one is neither the 100 proof US version
    at 50%, nor the UK/European version
    at 57% vol. Colour: like some liquid
    caramel. Nose: wow, stunning again!
    Bold, compact and voluptuous, starting
    with some eucalyptus, turpentine and
    mango, developing on pine needles,
    natural mastic and wax polish. It
    goes on with some dried fruits like
    apricot and coconut… Magnificent!
    Mouth: very creamy and very complex,
    with lots of crystallised orange and
    apricot pie, together with some vanilla
    stick and caramel. Not as complex
    ass the nose but still very demonstrative.
    An all-time hit, just a little simpler
    than the fantabulous versions from
    the 60’s and the 70’s.
    93 points. PS: History
    says this one was diluted with old,
    underproof malt instead of water.
    Cool idea!Whiskyfun.com
