  1. Ostap scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Good balance and consistency. The set of ingredients is not rich, but they are adjusted to each other. Saturated, even harsh whisky.

      Sun dried lemons and oranges, ash, smoke, charcoal, grapes, cranberries in powdered sugar, dust, leather furniture, pumpkin candy, barbecue, farm, vegetables, drying apricots, apples, and iodine and salt over time.

      Lemon, charcoal, skin, peach, dry palpable, ash, tar, knit, and there is a tangible sweetness.

    Longrow 10. Consumed March 2019 in Glasgow (at the Ben Nevis pub if memory serves). Aroma is a little peachy, some lemongrass Taste again has lemongrass, soft coal embers, very fruity, peat - burnt citrus peels ... interestingly fruity lemon. Interesting stuff - subtle integrated peat, lemon and salt, fruity distillate showing only soft bourbon cask influence but nice subtle wood. A pretty citrussy dram. 3.4/81

      Mineral salt, sooty, after rain sunny beach, camphor, eucalyptus, plaster, some pepper, tiny bits of sulfur, that springbank/longrow peat excellent!
    • Taste
      88 88
      Similar with the nose, that good ol' dirty springbank/longrow
      peat, lemony, mineral rock.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Medium long, sooty with some lemon juice.

    Longrow 10,

    Do you look like a peated whisky? I fully agree for whisky ...
    However, you have a lot more charm than this bland orange cardboard box would suggest.
    You are a spring whisky in my eyes, I find you refreshing. You are the sacrosanct representation of scotch tape which does not fart. And yet, you could humiliate many vikings and their frenzies of gondola heads.

    Medium finish, spice, pear

    Very smooth, good ten

  10. Kumachan scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    A charming nose, fresh and fruity with a peat typical of this house, a beautiful painting but ..... The painting is not dry ... And under this nose embellished, the mouth is really not. What a pity. Where will not you tell me. If it had to be given a subjective note, it would be a 82.
    • Nose
      Straw yellow color, few tears, thin and fast. Blind to the nose, I would have confused with the Springbank 12 years CS 2017. It is clear that the Springbank identity is there. Peat burnt, earthy and iodized, fruity, vanilla and spicy. White flowers, violet, pear and white pepper, lactic like some Beaune wine. Melon, Khaki and lime. A fresh and tangy nose.
    • Taste
      Opens on rubber, earth and burnt wood. Hot wax. It's creamy, vanilla pear, and maritime at the same time: licorice, mineral, wet and iodized rock. Little grilled feeling.
    • Finish
      The finish is short on the sea, salty and iodized squall. The empty glass is burnt camphorated and grilled.

  12. Koalafant scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    I like it quite well (85/100), but not quite my prey scheme. I'm guessing on a bourbon-barreled malt at about 46%. Spey or Low. Maybe a Glen Elgin?
    • Nose
      Very lemony freshness with subtle smoke and hints of passion fruit and some green apples and pears. No alcohol noticeable. Later some hay and grass. Was there smoke before? Now there is no one left.
    • Taste
      On the palate more hay and grass as well as shaky notes (shortbread) and a very subtle citrus note. Very round. Almost no alcohol noticeable. In the second sip a nice matching bitterness and a mixture of alcoholic u. peppery pungency. No smoke.
    • Finish
      Finisch long and soft.

  13. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    I'm so happy to still be able to excite myself so much after 1279 whiskys on young official traffic jams like this one! (This distillery will have rarely left me marble)
    Enthusiasm 5/5
    • Nose
      I just point out the context: I tasted the Springbank 10 years ago and I completely fell in love. So I have very high expectations in approaching this dram.

      I find the spirit Springbank immediately with this magic duet "soot / fruit", but in a smokier version, even meat. Fresh and creamy, my emotion is intact!
    • Taste
      I find these sensations in the mouth. It's juicy, vanilla, subtly spiced and malty. The smoke is there, without dominating.
    • Finish
      Smoke sweet and nice length.

    [February, 2012]  I had this dram during a "Springbank" tasting at Bonn.

    my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50
    - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 87,5.  I took no detailed notes.

    [February, 2003]  I had a cask sample from the 2003 batch during a MaRa
    Springbank tasting in Limburg. It was a refill cask with an abv of 54,1%.  In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50
    - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored this 87,5. 
    My notes state a rich profile on peaty/smoky and wooden flavours with some bacon aromas.  It gets better with some water added.

  16. Andytka3 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Fragrance, breath in the oiliness of the pomero, nutmeg and packed of
    exotic fruits. Cereal note as well the medium layer of peat.

    Palate:- Firm and well balance mouthfeel. Bitter chocolate and plum coated by accessible peat smoke. Sweetened hot oatmeal. Finish:- Light spiciness creep on the finish, solid taste of chocking
    ashes. Long and enduring, hard to shake it off, but in a good way.
    Love it.

    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

  18. Feusi scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Toffee, peat, smoke and malt well balanced in the nose. The same on the palate, you`ll have the same in the mout, what your nose is promised. The finish is long and warming. The malty sweetness ends in light peaty smoke. That`s a good one.
