    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.

    Nose - vanilla, raisin cake, smoked sweet fruit, raisins
    Taste - very sweet, sugary cherry jam, buttery, sweet pear, sugar caramel, sherry sweet brandy lustau?
    Aftertaste - caramel, sweet, a little spice, dried fruits

    In general, it seemed too sweet, even cloying.

  8. 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%

  9. DDiep did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Official tasting notes:

    Nose : Orchard fruits; fresh juicy green apples and pear skins. Rich and creamy; creme brûlée, hints of toffee and Seville Oranges.



    Palate : Syrup engulfs the mouth. Honeycomb emerges with milk chocolate, prunes, vanilla sponge cake alongside oak and nut notes.



    Finish : Raisins and pecan pie develop, followed by liquorice root, coffee bean and blueberries.
