  1. vlad78 scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Great old style Springbank.
    • Nose
      91 91
      Yellow fruits, apples, peaches, pears. Some citrus notes.
    • Taste
      91 91
      The same taste, the same fruits and citrus fruits.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Sweet, like after a lollipop

  2. DannyDram scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    Complex, rich in finesse, very balanced. If I only rated the individual levels (nose, palate, finish) it would be 92 points. But, the "overall package" is impressive, pulls through with a lot of tension,
    • Nose
      Green and tropical fruits, lemon, peppermint gum, malty, hay, ginger, wrapping paper, honey, wood. Pronounced intensity, balanced, harmonious and complex.
    • Taste
      Minty, blood oranges, honey, oak wood, a bit maritime and lightly toasted. Tender, full-bodied, very nice texture, pronounced aroma pressure.
    • Finish
      Orange, paraffin, honey, pepper. Sweet, slightly salty, long finish, very enjoyable.

    Not any smokiness that I wished but one of the most typical non-sherried Springbanks you can get - Great!
    • Nose
      Sweet, lemony, malty, apples, pears, hints of oak and old books - very good
    • Taste
      Fresh, punchy, very oily, liquorice, citrusy, lemons, some typical Springbank minerality, some honeyness, little peppery - excellent
    • Finish
      Medium long, fruity and spicy

  6. Waykid scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    What a ride! The best kind of flowery and dusty hayness combined with a stunnning sweet freshness and depth.  One of the very best I have encountered so far. If this is just a notch above the basic line they used to enjoy back in the day - well ... as Orwell put it "I was not born for this age, was Smith, was Jones, were you?"...
    • Nose
      Oh my! The intensivity of the combination of fudge, toffee-oak, green apple, appleseed and fresh lime/lemon caipirinha-style is just flabbergasting. Chamomile and Juicy Fruit from a supermundane stash (that, considering the context probably angels share among themselves). Underneath it a chicory-dryness. Dried lemon balm and fresh coriander. Sweet, salmiaky. The chamomile, honey and green apple grow stronger. Haybarn, flower meadow.  
    • Taste
      Sweet, round and deliciously nippy green and red apple, maple syrup, hazelnut. Really luscious and full-bodied. Honey, a hint of marzipan, truffle. Lime with cane sugar, green apple liquer. Dries just a hint.
    • Finish
      A long and round honey-malt.
