  3. Allandale scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A different Springbank?
    • Nose
      It takes some time: some walnut notes, dark fruit like prunes, leather hints in the background and... sulfur tones. Not my Springbank.
    • Taste
      The taste is much better with : red and dry fruits. Some medicine tones and some camphor found. With in the back leathery notes.
    • Finish
      Some fruit like strawberry, walnut and rancid. With hard rubber notes in the end.

    It's not my favorite Springbank style and my sulfur aversion does not help.
    Not what I expected.
    • Nose
      The nose is a little closed and sulfur.
      Walnut, prune, leather and camphor.
    • Taste
      The palate is fruity on red and dry fruits.
      We have camphor and a little medicine.
      Unfortunately we also have a lot of fat leather.
    • Finish
      Finale on rubber, rancid, walnut and strawberry.
