  1. Calmar scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Excellent molding, impressive in depth and variety, the fragrance evolves from a restrained and minimalistic to kaleidoscope hues and halftones, a harmonious combination of rubber and red wine in taste and finish, densely and sated.
    • Nose
      Restrained, moist, opens with rubber notes, raw grain, wood dust, grindstone, raw ash, over time red wine, black currant and chokeberry grow very powerful and juicy; light smoke-peaty tones, old books, plum jam, walnuts, confectionery flavors - mannik, fresh moist cake impregnated with jam.
    • Taste
      Rubber with semisweet red wine, very harmonious, sweet and sour dried fruits and berries, bitter-peppery wave.
    • Finish
      islo-sweet, wine notes, nuts, cream tones, black pepper, grapefruit crust, creamy tones, boiled condensed milk, light oak smack.

      Powerful, the Barolo wine comes through well, a lot of smoke but not annoying, pepper, grass.
    • Taste
      91 91
      Again powerful, the alcohol is very present, salty, sweet, smoke, pepper, vanilla, fruit
    • Finish
      89 89
      Long aftertaste in which the sweetness and smoke predominate. Still salty, yet again Barolo wine, beautiful

  3. Blindbob scored this whisky 81 points Expert Junior

    Had this one in the cupboard for a long while and finally got around to tasting it. The nose doesn't do it justice.
    • Nose

      A bit overpowering. a lot of peat and burnt notes
    • Taste
      83 83
      Very busy. lots of wood and dried fruit and burnt peaty things going on.
    • Finish
      81 81
      Surprisingly short for such a robust whisky

  7. theograph scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    A hammer malt with a classic Springbank character paired with a subtle wine aroma!
    • Nose
      Pronounced chalky, dirty, "farmy", smoky, sweet! Lemon, green stuff - celery, subtly leathery fruits, pepper;
    • Taste
      Dry, spicy, leathery, wood or oak, cold smoke, calcareous-mineral, again and again comes green garden vegetables, wonderful sweet smoke behind all the individual flavors;
    • Finish
      Medium-long, sweet-smoky with subtle wine aromas;

  9. hs305 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    [August, 2011]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 54 Euro in July, 2011.In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 87,5.  My notes state a strong winey profile that most probably is not to everybody's liking - but I like it...
