    Fruity and spicy aroma, honey, vanilla, sultanas, banana, yellow apples, cinnamon, orange peel, ginger, virginia tobacco and camphor. Marzipan sweet taste, anise, ginger, pepper, vanilla, ripe grapefruit, walnuts and smoked malt. Medium long, spicy and fruity end.

  3. markjedi1 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    This one certainly is no swimmer. On the nose, adding water is ok, but
    tastewise it collapses.
    • Nose
      The nose, which starts alcoholic, turns sweet on raisins, gingerbread
      and candid sugar. Some sour prunes and pipe tobacco, as well as some coffee. Light
      pepper. It even reminds me of a dark trappist beer! You will be hard pressed to
      find the Springbank profile in this one. It is there, surely, but the sherry
      cask dominates. Adding water does make a change. There is the wet plaster
      again.
    • Taste
      It is almost creamy and a little piquant on the palate. Again the
      typical sherry influence is there, with a lot of citrus. Very peppery. The high
      ABV has something to do with that, of course. Unfortunately, it does not cope
      all too well with water. It does not change the palate, but does weaken it.
    • Finish
      The finish can be called long, with a bit of good will.
