  1. Scherenschnitte scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    My initial impression of the neck pour stands after working through the bottle. I think it’s above average but definitely not great. I tend to prefer less cask influence when it comes to Springbank. The quality of single cask Springbanks usually isn’t much higher (if at all) over their core stuff in my opinion.⁣
    • Nose
      Sharp. Lots of leather, salted peanuts, tobacco leaves, chocolate, hints of maple syrup and burning embers, faint dankness. Not uniquely Springbankian, mostly just background funk.
    • Taste
      Very salty with sweet elements. Chocolate, bitters, spicy herbs, oranges, bananas, salty cured meats.
    • Finish
      Salty cough medicine taste.

  2. EvilAFI scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Sherry plays nice with the light funk, chocolate on the nose is great and vanilla showing up in the finish is welcome.
