  1. dram-drinker scored this whisky 97 points Moderator

    This is THE typical Springbank pattern that is not dark sherried. I think it couldn't be any better this way.
    • Nose
      Intense tropical fruits, pineapples, bananas, citrus fruits, passion fruit, green apples, and many more. Bees wax, sweet oak, vanilla and even a bit mineral and grassy notes.
    • Taste
      Extremely liquorice, oily, waxy and smooth. Mineral notes, pears, faint touch of oak wood, smoke, ashy and old books.
    • Finish
      Long and smooth - really just a tad bitterness - doesn't hurt at all.

  2. DannyDram scored this whisky 96 points Expert Senior

    In addition to the typical Springer character, also very delicate, smooth and with a lot of thrust.
    • Nose
      Topical fruits, especially pappaya, fresh pear, hoinig, wax, pack paper, trafolack. Very intense and complex
    • Taste
      Honey, pear, licorice, some wood, wrapping paper, a hint of medicine. Harmonious, oily, delicate, mouth-filling and intense.
    • Finish
      Salty, green fruits, wax and tropical fruits. Everything very long, beautiful, harmonious and soothing.

    My first impression of this Springer is that this is a nice juicy one full of tropical fruits that has plenty of distillery character on show.
