  1. DannyDram scored this whisky 94 points Connoisseur

    The classic Springer flavors are unmistakable
    • Nose
      Citric, mineral, nutmeg, transformer varnish, wrapping paper, cloves, vanilla, slightly maritime and a hint of medicine. Beautiful vanilla sweetness that rounds it off harmoniously. Pronounced intensity.
    • Taste
      Honey, rhubarb, maritime, citrusy, mineral, fruity, somewhat wet cardboard. Honey sweetness, delicate and mouth filling. Pronounced intensity.
    • Finish
      Rhubarb, honey, citrus, old wood. Long oily finish.

    Starts great on the nose, very fruity and complex - can't quite catch up on the palate but is still very good - overall a great old bottling!
