  1. schero scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Delicious. Represents well the transition from bourbon notes to tropical scent in bourbon deposits.
    • Nose
      At the beginning of bourbonlastige an adhesive note, but the mineral and salty Brennereicharakter comes by, after some life, the adhesive is gone and it is very sweet and tropical, mango, peach, honeydew, with water caramel is very dominant
    • Taste
      Surprisingly smoky and strong, full sweetness and again some glue, creamy, yellow fruits underline everything, with water, oranges and mango are back full
    • Finish
      Strong, oak flavor, then determine saltiness and minerals the game, the fruits are only to be guessed

  10. Implar scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    Color: Straw

    Nose: Oh yes, this is lovely! Sweetness at first, mango and some other exotic fruits, which evolves into a confectionary note, hints of bubblegum. Then some roasted almond, citrus and vanilla, with just a tiny bit of ash.

    Palate: The sweetness continues here, mango and unripe banana. Some pepper spice, probably because of the high ABV. Nuts again, quite briny, and a hint of peat. There's also a musky note in there, which I find typical in Campbeltown whisky.

    Finish: The sweetness is still there, accompanied by vanilla and honey. Some bitter oak to balance it out, medium long.

    I haven't had a lot of Springbank, but I've loved every single one, and this is no exception.
