  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Poured at the famous Maltstock Campfire, edition 2021. Strange and unbalanced, hot and herbal woody Springbank but fun to taste. Probably left-overs from several casks mixed together.
    • Nose
      Starts with clear-off notes of sulphur and spent matches. Followed by sandalwood intermingled with sweet liqueur fortified wine, and sherry notes. After a while, I got hints of butterscotch, buttery oak and some orange peel. Fudge and hints of burnt sugar. It's all big wood influenced with a sweet tang.
    • Taste
      Truckloads of cinnamon and gingerbread now. Followed by Christmas cake and roasted almonds. Also caramelized apple and rum raisins. Dried fruits of figs and dates. Resin. Notes of sweet calvados and milk chocolate in the background. It's quite 'fattish' on the palate.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Black pepper and a little nutmeg. The sulphur remains till the end. Quite 'nervous' whisky. Sort of rollercoaster, so to speak.
