  2. grinface scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    A good Sprinbank, with nice citric, cucumber, mineral and metallic notes. There is something slightly off in the finish. Some oak I did not expect.

  3. sagara-kun scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Simply very good and flawless.
    Tied with # 56 for me.

    Really want to taste it again in a few months after aeration in the bottle.
    • Nose
      Nose simple enough.
      We have mineral first.
      Then lemon, lemongrass, pineapple and papaya.
    • Taste
      More mineral than the nose. Pebbles, chalk.
      We have lemon, orange.
      A touch of camphor and ashes.
    • Finish
      Final quite pronounced on the cold ashes.
      We have a very nice balance with citrus fruits.

  4. detachedblue scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    A great Springbank indeed.
    • Nose
      Lemon peel and creamed barley sugar, very typical Springbank, very light smoke and some minerals.
    • Taste
      Intense, rotten vegetables, rich dark fruits.
    • Finish
      Medium, smoked sweet barley.
