  1. Cask1988 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Part of a bfyb set with all whiskies that are tend to be overlooked by us ‘snobs’ because of we are being more busy buying expensive bottles, lol. Tonight I am having a Springbank night. This is number one
    • Nose
      Typical Springbank nose but then light and unpeated. Delicate nose with lots of sweet and sour flavors. Citrus fruits are dominant. I’d describe this as young and spry. It shows quite some mature notes along side of the younger ones I get quite some lemon juice, lime, apple juice and also a more raw peel edge. The more heavy spirit character is there as well. I get vanilla, fruity yoghurt drink and some laurel as well. It’s very pleasant and enjoyable.
    • Taste
      Pleasant and gentle arrival. It’s oily and a bit creamy. Sweet and sour. It is more of the above actually. But a little less apple juice and a little more citrus. Honey-like sweetness make this palate really enjoyable.
    • Finish
      In the medium length finish more dried spices dominate. Quite some old oak flavors and the usuals suspects such as licorice and a little pepper but also there is also fresh grated ginger and quite some dried grass and green herb kind of flavor. Somehow I don’t like this finish very much.

      It’s nice. Though the finish is, for me, the least of the 3 judged parts of this dram. I still have a full bottle. Not completely sure what to do with it now. Mainly because of the finish. Sell or drink.

    I think the current average whiskybase rating (around 84) is way too low. You ask why? People just can't break free and believe that a whisky costing less than 40 euros can be good enough to get 88-90 points ... but it should. In the quality / price category it is a real showpiece. If you ever see it in a store, do not hesitate and buy at least two... it is pure joy, perfect daily dram :)

    Young and beautiful but naive.
    • Nose
      The milk, salt, flowers and dried fruit are one thing to say. Except for the lack of peat, there is no decisive difference between my smell and the Genting of my family. Summer soda pop, juicy fruits (watermelon, lychee, green extract) after freezing, minerals, cheese flavor is thicker than expected, and it also brings out a little springbank 10 100 proof MSG, and finally a little alcoholic pungent sense.
    • Taste
      The reconstituted fruit juice with a bit of sour skin, milk and lipids account for the bulk, frozen Vodka, salt, and aftertaste with some green tea and plant stems and leaves.

      In general, the fat is acceptable, the sweetness is average, no tannin, no astringency, no bitter bottom, no spicy feeling.
    • Finish
      Medium, non-dairy creamer, mineral water, leaves, light fruity.

    Room temperature when drinking: 22 ℃

    Viewing Eyes: White Wine

    Smell Nose: Ore, clear minerality, jade, iced green grape juice, slightly acidic soda pop, fresh smell, with a savoury freshness, and a sweetness, much like Chardonnay, But it smells much better than that, fresh cream, low sweetness, and some fat powder

    Taste Palate: The sweetness is extremely low, like iced green soda pop, the milky fragrance of the fig in the back, the end is mineral, gray texture, grass gray, clear layering, structure, good balance

    Finish: Finish water, mineral, fresh figs, fig leaves, horse milk

    Body: light and smooth, strong fat feeling, no tannin, almost no bitter bottom

    Nose: 86/100

    Palate: 86/100

    Finish: 86/100

    Body: 85/100

    Overall: 87 (86 + 1) / 100

    Overall: delicious, oh, this simple joy

    For me the Arran 10 is the better whisky. It has more facettes to discover then apple smell and lemon taste. Can't understand Ralfys 91 points here.

  18. 2ndSip scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Eminently fruity on the nose, sweeter in taste. A nice ex-bourbon whisky with a good portion of spiciness that is sometimes peppery and hot.
    [85 - 81 = delicious --- get a second bottle if price is within the range]
    • Nose
      light-fruity: honeydew melon, peach, apricot, apple with a very slight hint of acidity, but not unpleasant. In addition, green, still unripe banana and a dash of lime.
      Subtle sweetness of powdered sugar and vanilla behind it. A light oak spice can be perceived quite slightly in the background.
      If he was able to take in air, there is a salty, mineral and metallic note and the banana comes to the fore for me.
    • Taste
      very soft to the touch; Oak spice, which quickly becomes peppery and hot, joins it right away.
      The fruit notes are there from the start, but it looks sweeter than on the nose.
      With the second sip it becomes creamier and oily, waxy - something of a Clynelish 14, if it weren't for the youthful heat.
      The 46% seem stronger. With the third sip it is fruity again - interesting.
    • Finish
      Fruit and spice are retained for a medium to long time. The creamy mouthfeel persists until it disappears into the (peppery) flavor.
      There is something "green" about it, I can't describe it correctly ... fresh wood with fish leaves? Exciting!
      It lacks the age / depth for a longer finish. Still, that's great for a 10-year-old.
