  1. Wtrstrnghlt scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Nose: fruity, green and yellow. Some wax, vanilla and honey.

    Dried grass. A hint of vegetal smoke.

    Gets sweeter, more sugared. And then more fruity again.

    Taste: Fresh, citrus. Quite spicy on the tongue! Gets sweeter, fruity. Some sugarwater. Honey send wax. Oranges, like Fanta, Orangina or Sisi, including the fizz.

    Finish: hint of smoke. Salt and pepper. Less sweet but certainly not dry. Some oak at the end.

    Excellent and interesting malt blend.

    N ose :
    WOW! nice and fruity. It smells like canned fruit. Also something walnut-like. orange soap .... Very little hint of peat. Something also mousy, like in an antique store. Delicate chocolate.

    Taste : Sweet, fruity. Wood influences are clear. Furthermore some herbs like cumin and Garam Masala.

    Body : Clearly full and creamy.

    Finish : Delicious finish. Nice and long. The peat is most prominent here. Herbs such as coriander and cumin. Then the fruity.

  10. KayMeertens scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    HWF VBT 7 sample 5. Typical Campbeltown style, but it doesn't have the outspoken character of a Springbank single malt.
    • Nose
      Peach, peat, mango, vanilla, pear, papaya, cherry, chocolate, pepper, malt and a whiff of cigar. Clear Springbank signature, but it has something blend-like as well.
    • Taste
      Peat, mango, toffee, cherry, lime vanilla and pepper.
    • Finish
      Peat, peach, mango, apple, toffee, nutmeg, vanilla and green apple.
