  1. Mannix65 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    make sure to add 2 drops of water - defuse it, open it and reveal its maturity
    • Nose

      salted mirabelle compote, very maritime, standing on the sandy beach in the high sea spray, applesauce
    • Taste
      90 90
      surprisingly spicy without water, green honeydew melon, salted green apple slices, wet earthy moss - after adding 2 drops of water it becomes much rounder and more fruity, tangerine, orange zest, it gets sweeter, but also the salt note is more prominent
    • Finish
      89 89
      long dry fruit sweetness - a nice pleasant woodiness remains in the mouth and throat for a long time

    Quite a coastal Springbank which I enjoyed very much. Has some nice fruity notes in there as well

    N: Fermented raisins and firm mineral notes that turn ashy.
    T: Some heat.
    F: [no notes]
    C: My notes are truly pathetic I know. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with this Springbank, it simply got bedimmed by so much else on offer.

    Scores a B

    The two drops of water are very important in the whisky. Thank you Mannix65.

    It's good, but the soapiness reminds me of some Bowmores...
    • Nose
      A lot of mangoes, delicate smoke, characteristic sweet peat smoke, barley sugar.
    • Taste
      Delicate smooth and perfumy, a little bit soapy (bad soap), sweet and crispy, still enjoyable.
    • Finish
      Soapy, ground pepper, light peat.
