    • Nose
      Malt motifs, white bread, vanilla, sweet pastries (donuts in powdered sugar), freshly cut board, cardboard, paper dust, fresh red apple, green grass, cream fudge, gouache. 22
    • Taste
      Moderate, moderately dry. Burning. Fresh crumb of white bread, malt notes, red apple, fruit lollipops, vanilla, black pepper, apricot and apple jam, wood tannins, light beer, a little salt. 22
    • Finish
      Medium in length, smoothly fading, malt motifs dominate, towards the end of the dram a light haze and metallic notes appear from somewhere. 21
      Tasty, bright, vanilla-malt, very strong whisky. Balance 23

    needs time but this is a very classy and under rated expression. I think better than the rundlets expression. very fruity and floral, lots of marzipan and citrus. some nice spice from the re-charred cask that hits of smoke. drying in the finish in a moreish way. When I see this bottle at a reasonable price I have to buy it

    It's different and definitely a bit difficult, but it has something. A very interesting malt, where I think he will not taste everyone.
    • Nose
      First, a lot of bourbon and popcorn notes, then very citrusy, lemon zest, mineral, malty, some metal buckets as I often see it at Hazelburn, after the first sip comes to sour forest soil, some marzipan
    • Taste
      Creamy, mineral, nice print, marzipan, a lot of warmth, strong oak, slightly chocolaty
    • Finish
      Slightly bitter but then directly mineral and citrusy, the heat clings already firm

    Strange, but nothing surpasses the 10yo regular season at a fortress of 46%. That sample is more honeyed and, frankly, I liked even more. This molt is more floral, light. For that kind of money, I do not understand! I love Springbank very much, in particular, Hazelburn, but it seems that the cost has forced the first tasters to put high marks (WB> 89), while the followers simply did not have the courage for objectivity! :)
    • Nose
      87 87
      Clean, transparent, bourbon profile, malt, lollipops, flower honey, sweet flowers, cardboard. Further in development, salt, fresh lemon juice, minerality, a slightly dusty library, fresh hay, juicy summer greens, creamy and milky shades skip through the sweetness of the phantom. Beautiful, but the mouth lacks depth.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Dense, juicy, bright sweet wood, herbs, fresh green apple. You can search for something else, but it will be false.
    • Finish
      85 85
      The finish is medium, repeating taste, sweet, woody and herbal. Nothing remarkable.
