  1. ctu scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Correct complex Springbank.
    • Nose
      Vanilla, salted caramel, exotic fruits, hazelnut, marzipan and a touch of smoke.
    • Taste
      Oily, creamy. Waxy fruits, salted caramel, vanilla, pepper. More oak and smoke than the nose.
    • Finish
      Long, smoky, spicy.

    A little disappointed by the lack of complexity but a good whisky.

      A fruity and slightly peaty nose.

      The palate is spicy, peppery, a slight vegetable peat.

      A long finish, between pepper and peat.

    [December, 2013]  I found this dram in a commercial advents calendar.  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 85.  I
    took no detailed notes and never bought a commercial advents calender
    again.

  7. lincolnimp scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Still a quality dram, right up my street
    • Nose
      Nutty caramel with a little salt thrown in. Hints of dark orange liqueur, freshly sawn wood
    • Taste
      Full on the palate, creamy and fizzy on candies peels, hint of vanilla but its in the background, faint apple, saltwater
    • Finish
      Decent medium length and mouth coating.

    Beware that this improves massively with some exposure to air. It really opens up with some time in an open bottle.
