  1. Luigisim scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Concentrate essence of Springbank, intense dram, full of smoke and sweet notes.
    Poppy flowers and Fabbri amarena syrup.
    Powerful, hard to believe is only 21yo.
    Very good batch, although Port casks share is large and provide a very sweet flavour.

    I like Springbank, however their OB older expression seems to be abit dull for me.. while this have more dark fruits, it muted the mineral side of Springbank..

    The nose is medical-coffee, super! Then it’s very tasty and drinkable, it would have more aftertaste, and it would be a masterpiece, but it’s still a very cool whisky!

    The nose is almost a tad too subtle for me. Springbank can be seen, but the depth is not yet showing through.
    In the mouth, the port comes with more sweetness, which sets a nice contrast to the musty mineral smoke.
    Departure is nice and puts it on top of the younger bottlings. Decent length.

  14. whiskyexperte scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    Nose : Some smoke, malt, vanilla, floral notes
    Flavor :Slightly flat on the palate - sweet and fruity at first, then slightly tart with bitter oak
    Finish : Slightly spicy-fruity and somewhat bitter

  15. raithrover scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    Not blown away by the port and Sherry combination- needs another cask type to cut through the density and bring some lightness and elegance.
