Nose

Sehr zitronige Frische mit dezentem Rauch und Noten von Maracuja und etwas grünem Äpfel und Birne. Kein Alkohol spürbar. Später etwas Heu und Gras. War da vorhin noch Rauch? Jetzt ist da keiner mehr.

Taste

Am Gaumen eher Heu und Gras sowie zittrige Noten (Shortbread) und eine sehr dezente Zitrusnote. Sehr rund. Kaum Alkohol spürbar. Im zweiten Schluck eine schöne passende Bitterkeit und eine Mischung aus alkoholischer u. pfeffriger Schärfe. Kein Rauch.

Finish

Finisch lang und weich.

BLINDTASTING:
Gefällt mir recht gut (85/100), aber nicht ganz mein Beuteschema.

Ich tippe auf einen Bourbonfassgreiften Malt bei ca. 46%. Spey oder Low. Vielleicht ein Glen Elgin?

Je précise juste le contexte : j'ai goûté le Springbank 10 ans il y a très peu de temps et je suis complètement tombé sous le charme. J'ai donc des attentes très hautes en abordant ce dram.

Je retrouve l'esprit Springbank immédiatement avec ce duo magique "suie/fruits", mais dans une version plus fumée, carnée, même. Frais et crémeux, mon émotion est intacte !

Taste

Je retrouve ces sensations en bouche. C'est juteux, vanillé, subtilement épicé et malté. La fumée est là, sans dominer.

Finish

Fumée douce et belle longueur.

Comments

Je suis tellement content de pouvoir encore m'enthousiasmer encore autant après 1279 whiskies sur des embouteillages officiels jeunes tels que celui-ci ! 

(Cette distillerie m'aura rarement laissé de marbre)
Enthousiasme 5/5

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

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 it 87,5.  I took no detailed notes.

There is no accounting for taste...

[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.

There is no accounting for taste...

Nose:- 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.

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.
