    oh boy this 12 year old tastes and smells much much older and offers great depth of flavours and complexity. This is a highly satisfying whisky and I can recommend it wholeheartedly

    A very good powerful and balanced whisky. Rating: 88
    • Nose
      The nose is rich, deep and subtle. Flavors of malt, oak and leather. We are also clearly on exotic fruits. Then comes honey, salted butter caramel and a discreet smoke.
    • Taste
      The mouth is thick, peppery on red fruits and exotic fruits (mango) Chocolate, caramel, dried apricots and vanilla and a little smoke. With a little water, one feels a frank opening on the grapefruit and the dried herbs.
    • Finish
      Medium long finish on honey, caramel and peat.

  9. cfosterk scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    wonderful cask strength gem. easily one of the best entry level whiskies with great complexity and presented with no caramel or chill filtration. Quality wood used. Will become iconic and partly responsible for the renaissance of Springbank. I think at retail price this is amazing value.

  10. basje scored this whisky 85 points Member Senior

    Nose: Very interesting, very rich. Leather, sherry, polish, soft smoke, etc.

    Palate: Smoky and mineral, pepper, red fruits. Great thick mouthfeel, you can chew it!

    Finish: Smoky, dry and dissapointingly short.

    Conclusion: A great honest malt that displays the beautiful and rich Springbank character. It has a great mouthfeel and bursts with flavour. It's only flaw is its short finish and high price tag.
