  1. DerDennis! scored this whisky 86 points Specialist

    Interesting, complex aromas in the nose, which unfortunately do not show up so much in the taste. The age or the barrel has taken away the freshness and fruitiness of the whisky. The finish is too woody for me.

    Overall, this spring bench seems to me ... constructed.

    Qiute fruity but I don't feel Springbank signature smoke flavor on the palette. The nose is much better than taste imo ...

    scbp-3363, with the shadow of Langero's 10 years, salty, light, grease, and peat.
    • Nose
      89 89
      For Genting, the peaty feel is heavy, the overall is simple, refreshing and comfortable, aloe vera refreshing, watermelon white, more lime juice, pine needles, sour pineapple, turpentine, lime peel, sea salt. 89
    • Taste
      88 88
      Cold oil, very heavy salt, micro-ginger, ethyl acetate, watermelon peel, vegetable oil, rosin, lighter tannins, lighter burning aged tobacco leaves. The strength of the wine is medium to weak, the fat is strong and salty, rich in weight, the flavor complexity is average, and the balance is acceptable except for the saltiness. 87-88
    • Finish
      88 88
      The smell of melon peel reappears, tannins, ginger, slightly refreshing with aloe vera, slightly licorice, not obvious sweetness, not obvious bitterness, refreshing finish. 88
