  1. Fred Labosch scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    H2H tasting with batch 1.
    Not even close to the embassador batch 1.
    Way less complexity, less depth and way shorter finish. In direct comparison, all the sooty/smoky notes as well as the medicinal and dry mineral notes are completely missing.
    Still really decent stuff.
    Detailed tasting note will follow.

    a new batch to me. Found earlier batches pretty brilliant!
    I found this one even a bit better. What a value! I paid 32 Euro!!!!!!!!

      yessss, I knew it would not dissappoint me. The people at Springbank doing a good job in the neighbour house.The very special mixture of fruit, which I cannot pin down, soot, gentle smoke, old coins. exhausts. yogurt.

      Woah, this is so good, the PERFECT combi of citrus fruit, soot, smoke, earth, Pu-errh tea. Not too complex but still anything but simple. Highly drinkable!

      long, lemony, a pinch of salt. Prickling under the tongue.

      minerality, sea spray, iodine, raw sawdust ... light peat smoke ... salted caramel ... sherry shades ... spicy spices ... honey water ... hints of furniture lacquer ...
    • Taste
      87 87
      Despite the age of 12 years, it has a few tingling tastes, in many shades it repeats aromatics ... plus notes of drunk cherry in chocolate ... tannins of oak barrels ... the taste is slightly inferior to the aroma ...
    • Finish
      87 87
      Finish: more than average, warming, leather, oak, at the very end a taste of dark chocolate and bitterness ...

  5. Kensay scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    for my money - excellent whisky, quite balanced, with its own character.
    • Nose
      Lemons, salted caramel, vanilla and green apples, some wax and dusty attic
    • Taste
      citruses, butter and walnuts, some honey and cinnamon
    • Finish
      the finish is not very long, pleasantly warming, wax with honey and some spices

    Quite hard to find such a lovely whisky in the range of 50€ a bottle.
    Great value for money.
