  1. LordBellamy scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    with water: it tolerates a few drops of water, shows more peat, orange/lemon and vanilla

    Conclusion: a wonderful Springbank, which only gives a hint of the sherry cask
    • Nose
      90 90
      very typical Springer nose with peat, some dirt, harbor water, sweetness behind it, preserved pears, buttery, shortbread, yellow plums, mirabelle plums, the longer it is in the glass, the fruitier it becomes, almonds, subtle liquorice and excellently integrated alcohol, figs, dates and some pepper
    • Taste
      89 89
      good start, sweet and light fruit, dirty peat, salt, subtle wood, slightly mineral
    • Finish
      89 89
      Medium length, here too the successful combination of sweet pear, salt and peat, the dry oak also comes into its own at the back
