    Let's see how the batch from September is doing, which is now significantly lighter than all other batches since summer 2021.
    Edit 3.2.23 - On the last few drams of the bottle, I now perceive even more distillery character and even a hint of sulphur.

      Again a fat sherry nose, raisins, some leather, wood and spices. Only behind the Springbank Funk, salt, lime and some dirty smoke, which is somewhat hidden.

      Now unmistakably Springbank, the distillate is becoming clearer, more of the chalky-salty Campbeltown character with the special smoke. The fruity barrel character shows up afterwards, a little less present than in the previous batches. I suspect a slightly higher refill percentage.

      Here it gets a little saltier and warming from sip to sip. Nice balance of the components from the distillate and the barrel. However, the intensity does not seem to be quite as high as with the 4-5 batches before.

    roadside car service, oiled dirty rags, metallic notes, citrus, cooked fruit, even something cooked-meaty, quite fatty, salty, spicy.. Finish with tart bitterness. 22-22-21-22

    Highlight of this year's Santa Claus tasting at Cadenhead. Very complex, great salt and liquorice notes, subtle smoke

  7. amiridis scored this whisky 88 points Member Senior

    Quite a lot of oranges and tagerines wrapped in cocoa powder. Less motor oil than 06/2022, but the Springbank funk is more pronounced than with 04/2022. A bit salty and maritime.

    Takes everything the 10 does but bigger. Initial taste is extremely nice, sweet and smooth, however the finish kicks in more smoke and leaves it slightly overpowering.
