  1. OJK scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    I recognise that this will appear in my own self interest, in that I bought this (admittedly overly expensive) whisky and that I'm going to suggest that Whiskyfun's score of 82 is significantly too low. On top of that, like many whisky lovers Serge is a total hero to me, so who the hell am I to tell him he's wrong. But having now tasted this whisky on a number of occasions I can't help but wonder if perhaps there was an error with his sample (I'm clearly in classic denial...), given he describes it as sour and unsexy, and I find this to be pure tropical velvet, and dare I say it, pretty damn sexy (oh dear where is this going). Anyway I'd be interested to hear the thoughts of others who've tried this and who might likewise be confused, or alternatively anyone who might agree with his low score. It's purely a point of curiosity as I just adore this Springbank, I'm just suffering an emotional compulsion to defend its honour..

    It is without a doubt a good spring bench but at this price?
    In my eyes overrated and massively overpriced!
    For this price you get three independent bottlings, which can easily keep up with this.
    It's a shame that it hit Cadenhead's head. Cadenhead had already spanned the sheet massively with the last Macallan bottling.
    I hope that Cadenhead will get back to the ground and focus on his reputation as a fair, independent bottler.

    Cadenhead Springbank Cadenhead.
    • Nose
      Syrupy and musty, dunnage warehouse with apricots, nectarines and pear drops.
    • Taste
      Light smoke, then kiwi and lime mixed with mango, pink peppercorn, soot and olive oil. Peaches and cream with a hint of peat.
    • Finish
      Long lingering mouth coating syrupy fruits. Becomes oiler with hints of cresote but always remaining fresh.

    Initial price in UK was 420 £. Quite a mark up for the other Cadenhead shops.
