  1. whisky_garage scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    Aroma: Intense, bright. The first wave is engine oil, dirty oiled rags, minerality. A rather pronounced peat theme. The industrial ugliness around which everything revolves is replaced by cherry jam with pits, black currant, fruit syrup (apricot, peach). A pleasantly refreshing mint and menthol theme. Subtle tobacco shades.

    Taste: Bright, rich, sweet. Vanilla, berry mix, cherry compote, fruit syrup. Industrial motives, a little peat history, light haze, minerality.

    Finish: Long-lasting, sweet with a pleasant bitterness. Industrial notes, vanilla, some chocolate and cocoa.

    Conclusion: An excellent representative of the Mitchell family. Bright, harmonious, multifaceted with a rich palette of tastes and aromas. Whisky without a hitch in its age category????.

  2. vredensever scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    The aroma is bright, thick: a little smoked meat, gingerbread with jam, vanilla cream, boiled condensed milk, a hint of minerality. The taste is powerful, sweet: smoked, smoke, hot pepper, vanilla, biscuit, thick jam, berry jam, oak. Aftertaste : smoke, smoked products, coals, pepper, vanilla, jam, oak. Conclusion . Great whisky. Saturated, bright, fused. Excellent port wine aging. Rating: 90 (n23t23f22b22).

  3. Waykid scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    The nose is a delight, 91; taste just a tad less, though very good also, 90, which adds up for 90 and a half, so 91 this time. I'm quite a sucker for Springbank and this one really hits the spot.
    • Nose
      Chalk, licorice, strong brown sugar: a very pleasant combination of these, mild and light smoke, toffee, dried fig, a gentle electric-like sulphur and semi-sweet oak. Mild Molkosan (a milkwhey preparation from Vogel). Strong fresh apple/pear: dryish cider. With water: opens up to a truly delicious manifold roundness with all of these facets. Apple-y, leathery, mild salmiak.
    • Taste
      Sharpish and quite dry. Muesli, licorice-salmiak, a hint of fresh celery, owen baked apple, cane sugar, Calvados, dried fig. Stays rather on the medium-dry side despite sweeter components. Very full-bodied and coherent.
    • Finish
      Licorice-malt, medium-length.

    I`ve got a confirmed statement that this bottling came from Port wood.

    I enjoyed this bottling because of the typical Springbank flavors paired with a pleasant fruitiness.

  5. aby scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    nose: light peat, you can smell that it`s a finished whisky (probably port) and a fault as well, nuts/almonds

    taste: fills your palate, mouth full

    finish: short

    overall: not the best Springbank i`ve tasted
