  2. 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.

    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

    • 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
