  1. olegborgol scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    not a very typical springbank, but good aroma and aftertaste liked .. maybe a little lacking durability 23-22-23-22

  2. topos did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    a very 'muscular' springbank that is said to have been in an unusually hot part of the warehouse, so perhaps has a little more wood than usual but it absolutely works and the sherry is in check.
    • Nose
      lovely, pretty unmistakable springbank here I would say. blood oranges, leather, kiwi, green apples, wood chippings, tallow and sunflower seed kernels and a little plasticine. smoky damp foliage in the background.
    • Taste
      big arrival with orange liqueuer, earthy teas, leather, walnut skins, a little gamey side too. becomes more resinous and sappy in the finish, going on long with some kidney (yes) and walnuts.

    Thanks -Saxo- for his generosity for giving me this sample.
    • Nose
      90 90
      Very obvious sherry, lots of creamy and buttery notes, slight hint of soot, rather sourish, beehive and honey, wet leather jacket. The minerals shines after the heavy and punchier sherry notes, which is beautiful. Tobacco pipe, shoe polish. Complex and intriguing.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Continue from the nose, cream, butter, honey, leather. Not much of coastal notes which I enjoy a lot from other Springbank. A lot smokier than the nose suggested, some nuttiness, some oranges.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Long, bitter orange peel, light and faint smokiness, and some fruity finish.
