  1. Calmar scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Unusual derivatives, unusual whisky, quite simple, but interesting, there is a sense of wholeness, good balance and depth.
    • Nose
      Restrained, dry, first nose - homemade black chokeberry wine; fresh boards, fresh herbs, berry notes - homemade wine, tinctures; boiled vegetables, oil shades, dried apples and pears, old leather goods, mineral tones.
    • Taste
      Soft, rich, tart oak notes, a little bit of tar, home-made berry wine again, black chokeberry, berry jam, sour coffee, home-made fruit candy, strong ash and mineral tones appear in the development.
    • Finish
      Light, berry-oak, chernoplodka, sour-metal notes, prunes.

  2. Alex Fridays scored this whisky 94 points Expert Senior

    The colour is amber. The nose is very sweet and powerful with notes of grilled vegetables, apple jam, oak, butterscotch, vanilla ice-cream, plums, light naphthalene and red pepper. The palate is sweet with notes of naphthalene, plums wine, vanilla ice-cream, oak and old furniture varnish. The finish is long, sweet and dry with plums, spices, apple and plum jam, grass and old furniture varnish. This Springbank is closed to be perfect! It has very good balance and very unique taste. I like it very much! I gave 94 points!

  3. Waykid scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    The nose was a belter, 91; taste also delicate, but anyhow notably thinner, 89. That's why the 90 score.
    • Nose
      An amazingly delicate green apple, citrus, lemon balm, a marvelous toffee-oak, dry apricot, a gentle smokiness starts prowling around, deepens and rounds out. Flowery/fruity, a bit parfume as in Dior's Higher Energy. Sweet, citrusy and very fresh.
    • Taste
      Smoky at the beginning, salmiak, quite a thin mouthfeel. Chocolate, tar, very light, lemon, lime, chalk.
    • Finish
      The finish is very good indeed: malty and savoury liquorice. that turns saltier at the end.

  4. checkpointuk scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    The Score of 85P is for the one with the yellow line over the "12" black neck lable.

    100% Pure Malt in red with cream yellow distle.
