    The aroma is dense: tart and sweet berries in abundance, jam from berries, citrus, gum, marmalade, old oak, a little varnish, iodine. Hinted at the smoke? Maybe... Taste is tart, spicy with bitter taste: pepper, a lot of astringent oak, a lot of berry jam, dark honey, notes of chocolate, resin. Aftertaste : astringent-oak, sweetish with bitterness. Conclusion . Well-groomed, delicious Springbank. Tart and dense. Smooth. With a drop of water it seemed that more bitterness. Rating: 87 (n22t22f21b22).

    Nose:-
    Nose heating and astringent, shocking and demanding. Once the sensory
    accustomed to the hot waves of peat, you will find the bitter chocolate,
    raisin and white pepper whirling around. Take time.

    Palate:-
    Big and extremely spicy, complex and buttery, wood extract, earthy.
    Layers of flavours interchanging, but in harmony. Well married and
    structure.

    Finish:- Long and lingering berries fruit, tongue heating with notes of charred wood.

    Not for novice.

    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

    Finishing with wine barrels is not always good, but here was really a hammer thing! Really a neck sweeper for my just slightly scratchy throat.
    • Nose
      There is visually almost engine oil! And in the nose very differentiated: leather, sugarcane, dried fruit (including dried banana), honey, peppermint malt, also nutty. Some vanilla, cinnamon and other oriental spices; Light smoke is also noticeable, very fine wine gum, everything mixed into a syrupy sweetness.
    • Taste
      And the wonderful mixture then runs oil resp. syrupy on the tongue and maintains its exotic variety of ingredients.
    • Finish
      Cinnamon, vanilla and wine gum are noticeable when leaving the throat, but also pronounced licorice.

  10. Albaron scored this whisky 90 points Specialist

    Very aromatic whisky, the wine brings a nice fruity note in the whisky, very tasty
    • Nose
      Cherries, light smoke, cassis, coconut, citrus, some alcohol
    • Taste
      The alcohol here is stronger than in the nose, including cherries, plums, berries, grapes, light smoke and nut flavor
    • Finish
      the nuts turn out to be almonds, the light smoke remains and the beautiful berry nuts, and finally oak comes to the end
