    To Adrian!
    • Nose
      93 93
      Citrus-heavy and mineral - just as it should be, a little new metal bucket and noticeable and very pleasant portion of smoke, lemongrass, lime, grandiose nose, and over time an orange warehouse muff joins it
    • Taste
      91 91
      Creamy and pleasant start, then smoke and minerality come to the fore, proper warmth and spice, the tangy citrus notes are also present on the tongue
    • Finish
      88 88
      Smoke and citrus dominate the finish, both remain creamy and warming for a medium length on the palate, with the second sip a bit ashier and longer

      Wood to charcoal but no chocolate bitterness, very long.

    From Whiskyfun:

    Springbank 1992/2011 'Peat-Smoked' (46%, Berry Bros & Rudd, cask #61)  Colour: straw. Nose: gee-hee-hee… Ancient style Ardbeg and ancient style Longrow, both from 1973, blended together for our enjoyment. Right, they may have found an easier and cheaper way to produce this glorious malt whisky but it does smell ‘old style’ indeed, extremely elegant, sooty, tarry, ashy, oily and medicinal. Our dear wet dogs are back as well (sorry, dogs), together with notes of antiseptic, a little camphor, graphite oil, hessian and then plain seawater. Oh, and whiffs of clay. Brilliant, just brilliant. Mouth: extremely classy attack, clean and fresh, briny and rounded at the same time, with some bitter chocolate, flints (like when you lick some pebble), bitter oranges, ginger, cinchona, lemon, ash… All very, very good. No flaws whatsoever. More and more cough sweets coming through. Finish: maybe not the longest Longrow ever but perfect, salty. Orange zests and touches of cinnamon in the aftertaste. Comments: same very high quality as cask #71. I think this one isn’t to me missed if you like L******. SGP:356 - 91 points.

    In fact this is not a Springbank but a Longrow!

    In case you've missed cask #71, here's a perfect replacement. Is it indecent to hope for a cask strength version one day? That could be out of this world.
    • Nose
      Smooth and subtly peated, quite oily with some medicinal elements as well as more aromatic, fruity notes. Tangerine, pear and melon, I would say. Quite coastal as well, with iodine, wet sand and chalk. Wet wool. A little eucalyptus. Graphite. Hints of sweet lemon. Very clean and finely chiselled but not too austere, with the soft peat completely mixed with the rounder elements. Not too far from the legendary 1970's Ardbegs in that respect, which is quite an achievement.
    • Taste
      Slso quite oily, with the same elements we saw on the nose. Again perfectly in the middle between austere and rounded. A soft bitterness, a soft sweetness and a soft peatiness, how's that for balance? Fresh lemon. Mineral notes. Soft spices (pepper, ginger and a pinch of salt). Cold ashes.
    • Finish
      Long and powerful, still mineral with some sweet lemon and soot.

    By far more elegant than its brother, the 18yo Longrow OB from 2011. Overall a very consistent and nostalgic profile in its sweet-salty sootiness. (Reminds me of "Very Old Ardbeg")
    • Nose
      Very fresh sea water, iodine and coal smoke. Absolutely old-style medicinal flavours, soft and soothing, extremely elegant. Eucalyptus-like freshness. 
    • Taste
      Very smooth, rather light. Same elegant character as on the nose. Needs only a few drops of water.
    • Finish
      Unexpectedly powerful, long and warm. Some wood extract and soot. Sweeter now.
