    I drank this just before the Arran Devil's Punch Bowl III and the Springbank won hands down, so much more complex. No fancy packaging but the whisky speaks for itself. A great dram!

  3. Malt Hans scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    As I`m emptying the bottle, I would say my tasting note written 10 months ago, is consitent. Just a little more spices added to the aroma.

    Malty and fruity aroma, red apples, ripe

    orange, smoke, vanilla, honey, peaches and liqourice. Vanilla sweet

    taste, anise, ginger, eucalyptus, pepper, vanilla, smoked salmon,

    limonade, malt and soft tannins. Medium long, peaty, malty and floral

    end.

  6. hsmithjr scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    I expected more from an anniversary malt from the guys at Springbank.  For the money, the 15 or the 18 are the way to go.
    • Nose
      Sweet apples.  Vanilla and spicy oak.  Honey.  Polyurethane. 
    • Taste
      Spicy and sweet.  More bite than I would expect from a 46% ABV (in a good way).  Caramel apples.  Some cinnamon, and more honey. Smoke toward the end.
    • Finish
      Honey and kitchen spices.  Brine.  Soft peat.  Ends with smoke, and some oak.  After a few minutes, a salty aftertaste (again, in a good way).
