  3. ctu scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Big sherry bomb, oily and concentrated, but just as good as the distillery character.
    • Nose
      Big sherry, orange peel, waxy fruits, rum raisin and citruses.
    • Taste
      Powerful and oily. Matured oak, big sherry, earth, salted minerals, pepper, citruses and dried fruits.
    • Finish
      Long, oaky, fruity.

  4. Gondwana scored this whisky 94 points Expert Senior

    Washed Rock Oysters from the Breaking Sea!

  5. Bona scored this whisky 91 points Expert Junior

    Shame that this is a SC and gone forever. What a wonderful Sherry Springbank- deep Sherry notes, earthy, lightly salty, a wiff of smoke- works well without water. Far better than the regular 17Y Sherry Springbank. 91 Points, great stuff

  6. spatti did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    • Nose
      In the nose wood with very delicate fruitiness (orange zest), nut, vanilla, panettone-type-Mehlspeistoene, ends rather dry, the initial fruit is totally gone.
    • Taste
      On the palate, woody, delicate smoky notes, a hint of salt, explodes as usual with Springbanks. The wood is supported by beautiful sherry notes that almost go into the wine notes as the Arran BF.
    • Finish
      The finish is woody, dry, accompanied by a delicate iodine-salt note, relatively long, especially the Holztoene
