  1. dram-drinker did not rate this whisky Photo Moderator

    On the nose it would easily be like 93 points but unfortunately there is a strong off-note on the palate like cedar wood which I believe is not original but from the sample. Thus no overall rating.
    • Nose
      Intense, dried fruits, plums, figs, cooked oranges, jam, clearly whiffs of smoke, hints of old books, spices, cloves, hints of cinnamon and nutmeg, little vanilla, hints of oak wood - great!
    • Taste
      Strong off-note like cedar wood
    • Finish
      Same off-note

  2. lincolnimp scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    I didn`t do any notes but this one is quite expressive and is in my view a classic Springbank profile with good balance, the orange & mango fruitiness is excellent but there is also other stewed fruits in the mix.
    There is also a slight bitterness but difficult to put my finger on to be honest, could be the spices?
    Sadly very expensive now
