  1. aby scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    tasted this one at 48,5% at the Springbank virtual tasting. Pretty good, close to the 12y cs but with more buttery notes. Still noticeable as a SB, with slight peat and chalk.

  2. Double Barrel did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    94£ when released.
    As Dana White, a famous american philosopher, once said : "If you don't know, now you know!"

    Today I'm trying this Springbank which was part of a virtual tasting session with Springbank. This sample was at 48.5%ABV. Let's see how it tastes.

    Nose begins with wet earth, dark red fruits, then some farminess, then salty coastal air.

    Palate, brings barley sugars, red fruits, salt, light syrup, becoming oily.

    Finishes with red fruits, salt, cinnamon spice, and oiliness.
