  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    This Springbank 1966 Local Barley was on my bucket list for a long time. Even for a sample, not cheap. But what a dram!
    • Nose
      Very complex nose with fruity sweetness of pear and melon mixed with candied apples. Gingerbread. Beeswax. Mineral notes of wet stones as well. Roasted nuts. Hints of cough syrup. Camphor. Cigar boxes with a whiff of smoke at the background.
    • Taste
      Now more on oranges and tangerines. Dried apricots. Figs. Some mushrooms and leafiness. Tannins. Fudgy notes of butterscotch and rum-toffee. Later on hints of peat but in a gentle way. It's punchy and waxy with a full mouth texture. Lots of taste developments, but perfectly balanced.
    • Finish
      Quite long. Cinnamon. A little ginger. Clove. Pine at the end.
