  1. Archer scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Without runaway, from nose to finish. Sounds dull, but it is not. Although it does not achieve the quality of its predecessor, it is not really lacking much. Springbank doesn't have to get warm yet, but what Glen Scotia has been doing lately can be pretty fun if you like the Campbeltown style.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Although you can immediately smell the Campbeltown DNA, he initially appears reluctant. It takes a while to fully develop in the glass.
      In addition to the typical mineral-salty note that shows itself from the start, after a while there are strawberries, lychee and black currant. Crazy mix. Next to it something that smells like fabric softener. Fresh laundry on the line? At least looks very flowery. Sea salt, damp pebbles, fermented grapes.
      And there, now a subtle note of smoke emerges. So far, it was probably hiding behind a pebble.
    • Taste
      88 88
      On the tongue, with a pleasantly strong start, the smoke shows up from the start. Sweet forest berries, black currants, strawberries, cherries. Salty, mineral. Lots of dry wood. Malt, biscuit dough and tobacco leaves. Apart from that, very maritime with fresh sea air and a hint of marine diesel. Less floral than on the nose, but more fruity.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Clearly dry and smoky, medium length. The fruits linger, now appear fermented, darker, juicier.
