    A whisky to my taste!

    --- blind tasting ---
    • Nose
      89 89
      Sweet and heavy. Overripe fruits, slightly acidic, sticky honey and sweet pastries with a nice spice. Over time, it becomes vinous. In any case, I like it very much.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Strong start, sparkling alcohol, very sweet, maybe a slight smoke note? exciting! Dusty wood, dark chocolate.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Quite long, subtly bitter, coffee powder, walnut, citrus peel, waxy notes.

  3. Mascht scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    a terrific Hazelburn, extremely charged, super fruity yet typical Campbeltown
    • Nose
      92 92
      in the nose really powerful and intense, a heavy sweetness, overripe fruits like plums, pears, red grapes, apples, a variety of citrus fruits and wild berries. Behind it are notes of dark honey, toasted almonds, furniture polish and a complex cargo of spices, a subtle acidity and at the end a light sea breeze
    • Taste
      89 89
      heavy, waxy, buttery, full-bodied, dark, complex reminiscent of kumquat, dried apricots, baked apples, cardamom, shortbread, espresso and salted peanuts
    • Finish
      90 90
      long, fruity, mineral, a delicate oak remains

  4. WhiskyLovingPianist scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur


    N: It’s winey & grape-y for sure.
    T: Saunternes-led, the spirit again lost to the cask.
    F: A touch smoky then barley husky clean.
    C: I bet this is super popular given the bold cask. Not for me.

  5. Whisky did not rate this whisky Specialist

    This is really 55,9% ABV. In the very first announcement Springbank said 53,9%. The label is clear. And Springbank confirmed the 55,9%

  7. wncvirus scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Nose: smoke, fruit, honey
    Taste: Lots of sweets, with a light smoke in the background. Hidden alcohol. Some chocolate. Pleasant, complex flavor.
    Rating: 88 | 100 Quite long finish with a sweet smoke profile.

  8. Syleo scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    The influence of the Sauternes barrel is most noticeable here in the light fruits. The nose is well balanced between sweetness, fruit, oiliness and smoke, but I like the combination in taste and the creamy mouthfeel even better.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Thick, tough drops run down the glass wall from a beautiful zipper edge on the edge of the glass. They exude flavors of melted caramel, canned tangerines, ginger jam on black bread, cheddar cheese and suede. Then a slight hint of sulfur from a burned match, with iodine ointment, sulphurized apricots and peaches and a reminder of cold smoked eel, a few rose petals and beeswax, is becoming increasingly prevalent.
    • Taste
      88 88
      The oily sweetness between caramel, cheddar, smoked eel, matchstick and cinnamon also occupies the mouth. At first, the almost 56 percent by volume are barely noticeable for the sheer chocolate and nutty creaminess, like chocolate pralines with apricots in cognac.
    • Finish
      86 86
      The finish is also heavy, chocolatey and cinnamon, a few mandarins, almonds and a bit of malt combine in the aftertaste of cocoa with amaretto.

  10. ctu scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Sumptuous Hazelburn, especially on the nose. It's wild and grotesque for a Hazelburn, that's why it's divisive?!
    • Nose
      88 88
      Huge fruit basket, marzipan, punch, honey and spicy oak.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Powerful and oily. Peat, citruses, yellow fruits, salted caramel, matured oak, honey, pina colada and pepper.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Long, fruity, peaty.
